Buses and trains ran in Bristol, but initially offered a more limited service. Passengers were required to wear masks and distance themselves from each other as much as possible.

Car shares were no longer recommended for people from different households.

Some taxis still ran, but drivers and passengers were required to wear masks and open windows.

Walking and cycling became more popular for people not wanting to use public transport. Roads were clearer whilst most people worked from home so some roads felt safer, most notably in Lockdown 1. In some places, cycling lanes were widened, and some extra areas in the centre of Bristol were pedestrianised.
