Coronavirus Safety Tips for Passengers

Your taxi drivers are ready whenever you need them. They are taking measures to keep you safe. Please follow these tips to keep them safe too (tips based on the latest government guidance on safer travel)

Follow the driver's advice

  • You may be asked to sit in the back left-hand seat if travelling alone
  • Face away from other passengers where possible

Keep your distance

  • When waiting for a taxi, stay two metres (six feet) from people outside of your household
  • Don't travel if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms, self-isolating or clinically extremely vulnerable

Avoid physical contact

  • Be aware of the surfaces you touch

Maintain hygiene

  • At the end of your journey wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or apply hand sanitiser
  • Wear a face covering - the kind you can easily make at home

Make contactless payments

  • Pay in advance or use a contactless card where you can
  • If you can only use cash do not place it in the driver's hand: wash or wipe your hands before and after you've handled it
