Guidance for transport operators is now available on GOV.UK to reflect step 4 changes. Operators are advised to make to themselves aware of any changes in rules when providing services that cross the border from England into one of the other UK nations and where possible to communicate this to passengers. Links to the rules for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are included in the operator guidance. Passengers are also advised to make themselves aware of any rule changes when travelling from England to another of the UK nations.
