Yes, you must wear a mask or face covering on all InterCity services. You'll need to supply your own mask and keep it on throughout your journey.
Our drivers will make announcements throughout the service reminding passengers that masks or face coverings are mandatory on public transport. They may also remind passengers as they board the bus. If you are exempt from wearing a mask, you do not have to have an exemption card, but a card will make it easier if you need to explain why you are not wearing one. You can find out who is eligible and how to apply for an exemption card by visiting covid19.govt.nz.
For more information about masks and homemade face coverings, visit the official government COVID-19 website.
