How Covid-19 affects public transport

Kolumbus has put in place several measures in order to hamper the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We also follow the advice given by the health authorities.

Here are the main changes that affects public transport:

  • To protect the drivers' health, we have closed the the two front seat rows. You have to buy your ticket in advance, as you will not be able to pay by cash on board.
  • Do not use public transport unless you have to. If you have to, and cannot keep the recommended distance to fellow passengers, the authorities recommend you wear a face mask.
  • Sit next to each other rather than standing face to face in the aisles.
  • Reduced seats on the express ferries. Please buy your tickets at if you are travelling to Ryfylke, Lysefjorden or Utsira. Our ticket app, Kolumbus billett, is only valid on buses, trains, city bikes and the ferries to Vassøy/Byøyene/Hommersåk.
