Here you will find the latest news on how we work based on the prevailing situation in society and how the situation affects our bus traffic.
We have some new routines when travelling by city, region and express bus. There are also some cancelled departures. The prevailing situation affects our bus traffic in several ways:
- Until further notice, closed front doors aboard all city, regional and express buses
- No ticket purchase or validation of tickets on board If you travel with a city bus in Örebro or Karlskoga, you can buy a ticket on board the bus if you use Travel Credit. You can also validate your seasonal ticket on board these buses.
- Some cancelled departures
You can find the cancelled departures on our traffic information page. The information is in Swedish only.
Start of school and return to the autumn timetable
On August 17, we change to the autumn timetable. This means more departures and we resume certain lines that were paused during the summer. The autumn timetable is there to match the normally increased travel as school and work commuting resumes after the summer vacations.
The autumn of 2020 looks different compared to previous years. Many schools return to regular teaching in the autumn, instead of the distance teaching that was conducted during the spring. There is a risk of crowding on board. We follow the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations and we will do everything we can to reduce that risk:
- We will run all available buses and reinforce departures where needed
- We will also continue to run with fewer passengers in each bus
- Dialogue with schools in the county about the situation
When you travel with us, it is important to keep in mind that we can not guarantee a place in the bus. We also ask you to think carefully about whether you need to travel just that trip or just that departure. The times that are most critical are Monday to Friday between 07.00- approx. 08.30 and the same days between kl. 15.00 - 16.00. If you can, we recommend you to avoid these times and if possible cycle, or take a walk.
If there are new recommendations for public transport, we will follow these and as soon as we can inform you here on our website. If you want to know more about covid-19, read the Region Örebro website.
General advice when travelling with us
We follow the recommendations of Folkhälsomyndigheten,
industry guidance and Region Örebro läns smittskydd.
We ask you to consider the following:
- Wash your hands
- Keep distance
- Abstain from unnecessary travel
- Avoid rush hour traffic
Be ready in good time to have a margin if the bus you have planned to travel with is already full
We especially urge travellers who do not really need to travel during rush hour to refrain from doing so. This in order to prepare the place for those who have to travel unconditionally in order to maintain socially critical functions.
