Face masks at stops and on the street

Covering your mouth and nose with a face mask is obligatory on all public transport stop platforms and in all stop shelters. On the street, the mask is mandatory if a person is not able to maintain a 2 m (5 ft) distance from other people. (exceptions from this duty are listed in the directive of the Mistry of Health)

School bus lines cancelled

From Wednesday 14 October till further notice, service on all special school bus lines š85, š86, š87 & š88 is suspended, as well as some individual school connections on regular bus lines. Please pay attention to the individual timetables.

Nighttime service restrictions

From Friday 9 October, connections of all nighttime bus lines, departing at 0:30 & 1:30 on weekends and holidays from Hlavní nádraží, are cancelled till further notice. On workdays, regular service remains, except for selected reinforcement connections which are cancelled. Please pay attention to the individual timetables.

Face masks inside vehicles

Covering your mouth and nose with a face mask is now obligatory on board of all public transport vehicles. (exceptions from this duty are listed in the directive of the Mistry of Health)

Request stops

The request stops are again served on request only, so vehicles aren't serving every single stop automatically anymore. Passengers must give a signal to the driver if they want to use a request stop.

Opening the door

When a vehicle serves a stop, the driver opens all its doors automatically. This measure helps to ventilate the vehicle's interior and eliminates the unnecessary contact with buttons, which passengers don't have to push anymore.

Social distance

Please keep the recommended social distance of at least 1,5 m (~5 ft) from other people when possible: on the street, on stop platforms or in emptier vehicles.

Ticket purchase

To avoid physical contact between the drivers and passengers, tickets are no longer sold by drivers. Please obtain your ticket in advance in a ticket machine or a shop. You may also use the contactless card payment onboard.

Ventilation at termini

While waiting at a terminus, every vehicle keeps its doors open for as long as possible to ensure better ventilation of its interior.

Vehicle hygiene

All DPMB vehicles are cleaned on a daily basis, but more concentrated and more potent cleaning agents are being used to sanitize interiors.

Personal hygiene

• Wash and sanitize your hands regularly.

• Cough and sneeze into your elbow or sleeve, not your palms.

• Avoid people who appear to be sick.

• If you don't feel good, limit your movement to a bare minimum.

No first door boarding

When boarding buses and trolleybuses within the Brno city territory, do not use the first door of a vehicle! The first door is used for exit only! Boarding rules may differ on regional bus lines.

Vehicle sanitizing

Not only we clean the interiors of our vehicles with sanitizing agents, but vehicles are also sanitized with ozone during the night and several vehicles have been treated with special sanitizing spray layer.
