Rail travel

Taxi services

There will be a supply of taxis (can be hailed or queue at a taxi rank) and private hire vehicles, but possibly not in the numbers you may have been used to in the past. If you are planning to travel by taxi or private hire it is best to contact your operator and pre-book, and check if they have any additional requirements, such as limits on the number of people per vehicle, and face coverings. This would be especially important if anyone from your group is a higher risk.

A number of taxi associations and private hire operators have fitted extra screens between the driver and passengers, and this may enhance your safety and risk of passing on or contracting Covid, but limits passengers to the back seats of vehicles.

Operators and taxi associations require drivers and passengers to wear face coverings, and may decline to take you if you are not wearing one.

Some changes to the roads/pavements- Council’s temporary footway widening schemes to accommodate social distancing on Mill Hill, Call Lane, St Paul’s Street, Great George Street and New York street, Boar Lane.

Helpful Signage

Extensive signage, lamp-post flags, on-street markers and boards will direct people and remind shoppers of the core measures for staying safe.

Reduced Traffic

Changing delivery times for commercial vehicles (i.e. reducing them) to remove the danger of delivery vans and queuing people coming together on pedestrian areas, so access will stop between 9.00am and 7pm (previously 10.30 – 6pm)

Cleaning Teams

LeedsBID Street Rangers & council cleaning teams will disinfect benches, handrails & other street furniture to ensure health & safety but enable people to use them too.


Open in most shopping centres & large stores and at Leeds Station.

Hand sanitiser

Hand sanitiser is available around the city and in stores – think about bringing your own so it’s always at hand.


Please make use of the recycling points around the city. There are more than 80 on-the-go recycling bins – yellow for empty plastic & cans, orange for empty coffee cups. The Council are working extra hard to keep the bins clean.

Face Coverings

Certain areas in the city now require you to wear face coverings upon entry. This includes shops, supermarkets, shopping centres and enclosed transport hubs.
Full government details can be found here.
