The following is new government guidance on providing transport services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidance covers all modes of private and public transport.
Separate guidance has been published for passengers to outline who should be travelling and how social distancing rules should be observed across different points in journey
The guide for operators will help organisations, agencies and others (such as self-employed transport providers) understand how to provide safer workplaces and services for themselves, their workers and passengers across all modes of private and public transport. Each transport provider will need to translate the principles and examples in this guidance into specific actions."
It is important that you review and implement these guidance documents if you are operating a taxi or private hire vehicle business, or are a self-employed driver.
