More than a million Scottish commuters will be unable to take their regular daily journey to work by bus or train under strict new social distancing rules.

Government measures to manage the return to work will severely restrict capacity and thousands will be encouraged to walk, cycle or continue working from home to ease the burden on the transport network.

Those who do use public transport will be forced to wear masks and avoid peak times, while employers will be asked to stagger start times and introduce shorter working weeks.

Bus and tram users will be asked to queue at safe distances and use contactless payment cards where available, while the largest rail stations will have floor markings. Waiting rooms will be closed.
