Welcome to our online travel site. If you’re planning to travel to, from and through York we want to make sure you have access to travel information that will help keep you safe and be able to plan your journey.

Since the coronavirus pandemic, we know we need to re-evaluate our travel habits, with cleaner air, increased levels of activity and the physical and emotional health benefits of exercise all the more evident.

Following changes in national guidance, we are opening up the city for everyone to enjoy it safely and have made changes to the way people move around the city.

For further information on the new measures to support the reopening of our city, please visit www.york.gov.uk/LetsBeYork  

The current instruction from government is that you can help control coronavirus and travel safely by walking and cycling, if you can. Where this is not possible, use public transport or drive.

Due to social distancing there will be limited space on transport services and you may have to wait - please plan ahead, avoid the peaks and be patient when travelling.
