Covid-19

Bus4u Iceland has high emphasis on safety and quality, taking into account current events. Following Covid-19, we have put in place new procedures in order to ensure the safety of both our clients and staff members. The procedures are regularly updated in accordance with government regulations and recommendations. Our employees are continually educated on changing emphases and procedures.

Cleaning and Sanitization of vehicles

We have clear cleaning and disinfection plans visible and effective monitoring of implementation. We ensure regular periodic cleaning of the passenger compartment. All the detergents we use are certified and recommended by directorate of health. Vehicles are cleaned and sanitized by professional and trained staff at the end of each day. The driver needs to clean the main contact surfaces within the buses at the appropriate stops. During the day, high touch points may also be cleaned.

 

Sanitization products

We have a hand sanitizer at the entrance and encourage passengers and staff to use it when going in and out of the buses. We can also, on demand, provide extra protection such as plastic gloves and face masks. 

 

Social distancing

We encourage our passengers to respect the social distancing. We ensure good ventilation in our buses.

 

Our drivers

We can also, on demand, provide extra protection such as plastic gloves and face masks for our drivers. If our business partners demands, we´re able to separate driver´s area and mark accordingly. 

 

Training and protection

Our cleaning technicians have been trained on procedures and process. Personal protective equipment such as mask and gloves are supplied to provide a safe working environment.

 

Information

We inform passengers of the measures taken to prevent infection. In all our buses you will find instructions and posters on covid-19 with information from directorate of health. We´ll have readily available information on the situation in Iceland, the number of infections in places and territories. Provide information on how to respond to any suspicion of infection and the role of staff in such situations. 

Control measures for COVID-19

  1. Masks must be worn if the 2-metre physical distancing rule cannot be kept.

  2. Children born in 2005 and later are exempted from wearing masks and physical distancing.

    • Everyone must wear a face mask the entire trip.
