Welcome to NIBS buses.
From 27 January 2022, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering.
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.
You may have seen on the news lately, or read in the newspapers, articles relating to a national shortage of lorry drivers around the country.
This driver shortage is also affecting the bus industry across the whole of the UK, and unfortunately, this includes NIBS buses.
The lack of drivers, coupled with Covid related staff sickness and isolation periods, plus a severely reduced service available from the DVSA for new driving tests, and the DVLA for driving licence processing, is causing problems on a scale the industry hasn’t encountered before.
We are doing our very best to continue to run our routes as regularly as possible, however, there will inevitably be delays or cancelled services in the forthcoming weeks.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this will cause, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
