How Safe Is Public Transport During Covid-19?

The government recommends avoiding the use of public transport during Covid-19 and opting for private use, bicycles or walking instead. This is understandable since there is a large risk of infection on trains and buses especially if they are crowded. Ventilation on trains, buses and trams are limited, but will help accelerate the spread of the virus faster, since droplets cannot dissipate without open windows for example.

The Benefits Of Chauffeur Hire During Covid-19

We understand that using bicycles or walking isn’t always a practical option for everyone. For example those with breathing difficulties, the elderly or vulnerable will still need to use cars to travel. So why not consider using our private Chauffeur Service instead of public transport during Covid-19. The benefits of using our private Chauffeur Service instead of taxis, buses and trains include:

Vehicles With Extra Protection

Plus allow you to easily board and leave the vehicle. Our chauffeurs will enable the electronic doors for when you’re ready to enter and exit the vehicle. Unlike taxis you won’t need to touch door handles from multiple passengers. And all of our vehicles are cleaned before and after each use, so you have that peace of mind, unlike taxis of who has touched or sat inside the vehicle all day long and when they were last cleaned between passengers.
