Hand sanitiser stations will be available on coaches for customer use as you board. We will
also be recommending passengers bring hand sanitiser gel for use during the journey.

To minimise the spread of the virus passengers must wear a face mask or face covering when
on board the coach.
- Deep cleaning daily
Regular aerosol-based disinfection with a high-performance antiviral solution, sometimes
called ‘fogging’ is being used on our coaches. Key touch points, including handrails, armrests,
and seat belts, will be cleaned using high performance antiviral cleaning solution.

An additional filter using three types of technology, including UVC radiation to reduce bacteria
and corona type viruses, a PM2.5 filter to block 99% of airborne particulates and improve
air quality has been installed on the air conditioning systems of all coaches.

Boarding and disembarking may take longer than usual. Customers will be asked to empty
from the front and let passengers sitting in front of them off the coach first.

All of our drivers will be provided with protective equipment including visors, masks, gloves
