Failure to do so can mean you'll recieve a £100 fine

The government has made wearing face coverings on trains and at our stations mandatory, unless you’re exempt. View the government's safer travel guidance for passengers on their website.

  • You should not use medical grade PPE. You can find advice on how to wear and make a cloth face covering on the government's website.
  • Please wash your hands before and after wearing a face covering. Whilst there is liquid soap in our station and on-train toilets, there is no hand sanitiser available, so please bring some with you when you travel. We are working on making hand sanitisers available in the future and will update our website after this happens.
  • Children under 11 are not required to wear face coverings.
  • People with a disability or illness which means that they cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering are not required to wear one. This can include people with breathing difficulties, PTSD, etc. Please use your own judgement and act responsibly. If you have disability or illness and can still wear a face covering, please do so.
  • We recognise it may be difficult for a customer who has a hearing impairment, has a learning disability or dementia to be able to hear a member of staff who is wearing a face covering. We also know that some customers may need to lip read.

    If this is the case for you, please be assured that our staff have been trained to respond to your needs and can safely remove a mask to speak to you, or write down instructions for you, if that’s helpful, whilst maintaining a safe social distance. Please just let them know how they can help and they will do their best to assist.

Legally, our staff can politely remind passengers that it is compulsory to wear a face covering, but not enforce it. Please wear a face covering, unless you have a condition that means you are exempt, as this is the mandatory guidance issued by government. *Anyone not wearing a face covering who isn't exempt, can get a fine of £100 from the Police and Transport for London enforcement officers.

Please adhere to social distancing advice and keep a safe distance apart from others where possible.
