Learn how to behave and what rules to follow.
Public Transport Rules
All forms of public transport are operating. However, the obligation to wear a mask remains in effect everywhere. You should only travel by bus, train or tram if you are healthy. Observe a distance of 2 metres from other passengers at all times. When disembarking, leave your seat as late as possible to prevent crowding near the exit. Under no circumstances should you discard your used mask on the vehicle, but take it with you for safe disposal. Remember, sneeze and cough into the bend of your elbow.
Air conditioning is permitted in vehicles. Disinfection of the vehicle interior is mandatory, the removable foil is optional. A single taxi can carry 2 passengers in addition to the driver at any one time. The obligation for driver and passengers to wear a mask remains in effect.
The basic rule remains the obligation to wear mask in the airport area as well as on board the aircraft. Hand disinfection must also be provided. Contactless check-in of passengers and luggage is preferred, as well as cashless sales on board. A minimum distance of 2 meters must be maintained in a row of standing persons. The temperature measuring is ordered for passengers arriving in Slovakia. This measure applies to each flight. Likewise, each member of the flight crew must be regularly health monitored. Regular disinfection of the airport premises and the aircraft itself remains a necessity.

On a Scooter

Thanks to the Bolt app, you can use the services of shared scooters located all over the city centre.
