PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES are allowed to fill all their seats today for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has confirmed that buses, trams and trains will be returning to 100% capacity and that seats will no longer be blocked off to avoid people sitting too close together.

Masks are still a requirement to use public transport, and passengers are being asked to also use hand sanitiser.

Some people believe the time is right (or overdue) to allow transport run at full capacity due to the success of the vaccine rollout, but others think it’s too soon as cases continue to rise once again.
