Unfortunately, it has been brought to our attention that some drivers are not following government guidance and Council guidance regarding the safe cleaning of vehicles.
To clarify, it is advisable that your vehicle is thoroughly cleaned, with disinfectant if possible, before you take it out at the beginning of your shift and again when you end your shift.
You must also clean all surfaces after each fare is completed, paying particular attention to any places that are touched by a passenger, such as grab handles, door handles, payment machines and/or payment hatch.
These measures are not only in place to protect the next passenger entering your vehicle, but will also help to protect yourself.
If you are considering installing a temporary protective screen please read Installing Protective Screens Advice.
