It has been announced that MAN Truck & Bus is now offering a hygienic protective barrier that can be retrofitted on city buses, intercity buses and coaches, which will help to provide the best possible protection for bus drivers against the coronavirus.
Precautions will need to be taken to protect bus company employees, especially once the current spacing and sanitation rules are gradually relaxed. Front-door boarding is still prohibited and the front rows are still off-limits on many buses. As soon as these are reopened to passengers, the driver will automatically be re-exposed to much more contact with new people, whether to answer their questions or sell tickets. MAN Truck & Bus worked closely together with bus companies in a variety of countries when discussing and implementing its ideas and solutions for protecting drivers. The aim is to ensure that these satisfied the needs and preferences of operators as effectively as possible.
