Important notice to all our customers

As from Monday 31st August, it will be mandatory for face coverings to be used on public transport, however the Minister of Heath has now advised that this will not be mandatory for Taxis and Total Mobility Operations. While the Minister recommends passengers wear masks, it is now up to personal choice.  Our drivers are still required to wear appropriate face coverings as of Monday, and will be doing their part to keep our customers safe and healthy.

Please note also, in Alert Level 2 we cannot carry passengers in the front seat. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
