Protecting the health and safety of passengers and employees is always our company’s top priority. As we cautiously prepare for the phased restart of large-scale events nationwide, we are monitoring guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) to ensure our internal team and transportation partners maintain their rigorous cleanliness standards.
We also recognize that every event is different, with its own set of passenger requirements and localized concerns. Our team is working closely with clients to develop customized transportation plans that incorporate enhanced health and safety guidelines. We are dedicated to having ongoing discussions with partners and clients to deliver the safest possible transportation services for each event.
Here are three supplemental COVID-19 safety protocols that are available to TMS clients:
Disinfecting and testing vehicles used in operations
Coaches will be cleaned, sanitized and tested before boarding passengers and at the end of each day using hospital-grade disinfectant cleansers. The cleaning crew will give extra attention to frequently touched areas like handrails and armrests. Drivers will carry extra disinfectant spray to sanitize the coach throughout the day as time permits, and open the air flaps to allow fresh air to circulate.
Developing operational plans for passengers to board and ride coaches safely
Waiting and loading areas will be modified to accommodate physical distancing. Seating arrangements on coaches will be designed to limit occupancy and proximity, and hand sanitizer dispensers will be available on each vehicle and at loading areas.
Creating consistent safety protocols for staff, drivers, and passengers
Employees will receive thorough training on processes that will be tracked for compliance and efficacy. Clear instructional signage and additional information will keep passengers informed about safe habits and rules for boarding and riding during events.
