COVID SAfe health and safety tips

Physical distancing

Passengers and drivers who are unwell or experiencing cold/flu symptoms should stay home, if possible. Implementing signage to encourage this is recommended.

Please maintain as much physical distance as possible, and avoid close contact between driver and passenger with these measures:

  • Limit the number of passengers to one person where possible, unless they are members of the same family or travelling group.
  • Where possible, passengers should sit in the back.
  • Avoid touching seat headrests.
  • Passengers should handle their own luggage.
  • Contactless payment is preferred.

Hygiene and face masks


Drivers and passengers must wear face masks and vehicle operators should make hand sanitiser available within the vehicle.

Vehicles should be cleaned and disinfected after each shift, with a focus on high-touch surfaces like grab rails, handles, arm rests, seat belts and buckles. An additional wipe-over with disinfectant wipes between passengers is advised.

Where possible, drivers should set the air conditioning to external airflow instead of recirculation, or open a window.

Closed bins should be provided, where possible and appropriate.

Create and use QR Codes

Vehicle operators can create their own QR code by creating a COVID SAfe plan for their vehicles.
