The wellbeing of our passengers, drivers and employees is of the utmost importance to everyone at Drive.
The UK Government is advising against the use of public transport (buses & trains). As such, Drive has set clear guidelines around managing the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that will help protect the community, whilst we maintain a 24/7 service.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- We kindly ask that anyone showing symptoms associated with COVID-19 stay at home. This is the advice we give to passengers, drivers and staff. For the latest update on the government recommendation please see here.
Where possible, we are asking for members of the public to pay for their journeys through our cashless options seen below. It is important to note that drivers will still accept cash, however, it is the government’s advice that cashless payments is crucial to fighting the spread of Covid-19.
- Download the app and pay by card appsend.me/Ride.
- Book via the phone and we’ll send you an SMS with a link to use Airpay.
- Pre-pay over the phone with one of our helpful operators.
The Government has recently advised that members of the public should consider wearing face coverings in enclosed public spaces. This is advice we would urge members of the public to adhere to within the vehicle. “Face-covering can help us protect each other and reduce the spread of the disease if you are suffering from coronavirus but not showing symptoms.” https://www.gov.uk/government/news/public-advised-to-cover-faces-in-enclosed-spaces
Sit in the back & open a window
With a car being an enclosed space, we want to make sure that both you and the driver are protected. As such, please sit in the back, preferably on the left-hand side if you are travelling on your own and open a window. This is to maximise social distancing and encourage clean airflow throughout the vehicle.
Please help to protect our drivers and the next passenger by removing all of your belongings and waste at the end of your journey.
