Attention in these exceptional circumstances:

We regret to inform you that assistance to mobility impaired passengers cannot be guaranteed. We therefore invite passengers requiring assistance to cancel their trip.

Long bus journeys are difficult for the most vulnerable (infants, young children, elderly or people having health problems). We therefore recommend to travelers in these situations to cancel their trip.
Parents of small children who still wish to maintain their journey have to bring their own baby seat or booster seat, these are not provided.

In addition, pets are not allowed on board of buses even if they are in baskets. We therefore invite passengers to renounce traveling with their pets or to cancel their trip.
