From 27 January 2022, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering on public transport. The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.

A revised timetable with temporary reductions to some Greater Anglia rail services is in effect.
