TRANSPORT for Wales is asking passengers to respect its staff and follow the latest travel advice to ensure safe and pleasant journeys for everyone travelling this weekend.

The Wales and Borders network is expected to be busy following the reopening of pubs, cafes and restaurants in Wales for outdoor hospitality.

The Capacity Checker tool helps give an indication of the trains that are often full and the ones with seats available, so people can decide the best time for their journey.

British Transport Police Inspector Richard Powell said: “Our top priority is to keep passengers and rail staff safe. We continue to patrol the network, ensuring those using the railway can do so safely.

“Officers will also be reminding passengers of the importance of wearing a face covering on trains and at stations, unless exempt. If you need us, text 61016 or call 0800 40 50 40.”
