Do trains and buses run on public holidays?

Buses and trains operate on public holidays unless there is a special announcement for a particular service.

Some rail lines tend to do important work on public holidays meaning disruptions can occur, but there is often plenty of advance notice.

Buses otherwise run throughout the holiday, but services can change or be less frequent – so always check times before setting off anywhere. Useful software like staff leave planner is a great way to plan a
company’s employee’s leaves in advance.

Most bus routes run on Sundays on public holidays, which means you can still catch a bus, but they may end earlier or have longer breaks.

If you’re one of those Brits who have to travel this bank holiday, most bus companies have a timetable you can check online so you don’t have to wait for a bus that doesn’t come.
