Car Share – Advice

Devon County Council has issued guidance to commuters and other car sharers as they head back to work or are out and about.

If you need to drive or share a lift with people from other households, please take some sensible precautions:

  • share the transport with the same people each time
  • keep to small groups of people at any one time
  • everyone in the car should wear face coverings
  • try to keep as much distance as possible between each other
  • travel side by side or behind other people where possible, and try not to face them
  • open windows to allow air to circulate
  • everyone should remember to wash their hands properly before and after their journey.

Stagecoach is encouraging passengers who are unable to wear a face covering on the bus due to a health condition or a disability to apply for new ‘face covering journey assistance cards to show to drivers when they board to confirm they are exempt from the legislation.

There is also a special card available if you need the driver to lower their face covering because you are hearing impaired and need to lip read.


Once you’ve filled in the application form, Stagecoach will email you a card that you can save to your phone and show to the driver when you get on the bus – or you can download and print your card. If you don’t have a smartphone or printer, please contact your local team and they’ll arrange for a printed card to be sent to you
