Over 300 passengers have been fined for failing to wear a mouth and nose covering on public transport.  The covering became mandatory on 4 May.

Police have so far fined 338 passengers for failing to wear a covering on bus, tram, train or metro. Securail, the rail service’s security division, has also issued over 100 administrative fines.
