Inter-provincial passenger bus services whose departures and arrivals are in low-risk regions for COVID-19 will also resume gradually.
Measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic apply to passenger bus services. For example, vehicles need to be disinfected frequently and long-distance buses must have at least two drivers.
