Information about traveling by public transport in the time of corona

In conjunction with the infection prevention measure rules having become stricter again, we have gathered information below about traveling by public transport in the time of corona.

Practical information

It is safe to travel by public transport. For short tips we recommend that you walk or use a bicycle.

When you travel by public transport, we still ask you to follow the guidelines below:

  • Do not use the public transport service if you are ill or may be infected with a disease
  • Use the front door to get on the bus and the back door to get off the bus if possible
  • Avoid touching surfaces and equipment on board if not necessary
  • Avoid unnecessary physical contact
  • Have good hygiene, use a flexed elbow or paper if you need to cough or sneeze
  • Follow the advice given by the authorities and be considerate of other travelers
  • Have a valid ticket when traveling by public transport

Use of face mask

Note! The government introduced a national injunction from 9 December 2021 to wear a face mask on public transport when it is not possible to keep at least 1 meter distance on public transport. The injunction was extended from 14 January 2022. In addition, the government issued a recommendation to avoid the use of public transport in times of congestion. In taxis, it is mandatory to use a face mask for both passenger and driver. Measures will be reconsidered in early February.

The capacity on board

As of 10th December 2021, the first seat rows in buses should not be used and are closed off. All other seats on the buses, express boats and ferries can be used as normal. On buses with standing places, these can also be used.

All public transport passengers have their own responsibility to ensure infection prevention, both before you board and during the trip. And we ask everyone to follow our guidelines for traveling by public transport.

Buy a ticket and use the travel planner

We encourage everyone who can to buy a ticket in advance. This provides the most efficient handling on board, which reduces the risk of infection. You can buy tickets in the FRAM app, through the online store and at the traffic terminals. You can refill your travel card in the online store and at the traffic terminals.

Normally, you can pay with a bank card and cash, use a travel card and read the ticket purchased in the FRAM app on the ticket readers in the buses and express boats.

Note! From 10th December, the front doors are closed on buses in parts of Møre and Romsdal county. In those areas where the front doors are closed, it is not possible to buy a ticket on board.

Note! Payment by text message has been activated again from 10th December 2021 due to closed front doors in parts of the county. You can find information about buying a ticket by text message here (in Norwegain only).

Use the travel planner on and in the FRAM app to find updated information about schedules.
