Figures issued by Transport for Wales show that 78% of their customers are complying and following the requirement to wear a face-covering on trains.
In addition, they must now be worn in and on stations, platforms and also in car parks following new Welsh Government policy.
Extra advice on wearing face coverings properly is being given by TfW.
The Sunflower Lanyard Hidden Disabilities Scheme can help those unable to wear a face-covering be identified easily.
Almost 500 people were refused travel during the first week of September with Transport for Wales and British Transport Police working together to ensure people comply with the rules.
Leyton Powell, Safety and Assurance Director Transport for Wales said: “Our statistics reveal that we have now positively managed behavioural change on our train network as on average we’re seeing 78% of people complying and wearing a face covering on TfW trains. The safety of our customers and colleagues is our top priority and I’d like to thank all those adhering to the rules.
“In line with the rest of Wales, we’re now asking our customers who are not exempt to also wear a face covering while at our stations, on our platforms and in our car parks. These are extra safety measures that will allow us to keep operating safely.”
