Coronavirus (COVID-19): Driver Partners - You matter to us.
Updated: 24 July 2020
We are introducing additional safeguarding measures to protect you against the spread of COVID-19.
From Monday 27 July 2020 it is compulsory to wear a face covering on public transport in Wales. This also applies to taxis.
Face coverings are available to all Driver Partners operating with Dragon Taxis. Contact your Driver Liaison Team to request your face coverings, and they will arrange for you to collect a pack, free of charge, every week on an ongoing basis. For more information, click here.
You must wear a face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you’re exempt. Please be respectful, not everyone can wear a face covering. Visit the guidance for When you do not need to wear a face covering.
In these instances, passengers are encouraged to Download a face covering exemption card.
For further information, please follow Government guidance on Requirement to wear a face covering on public transport in Wales.
There’s only so much social-distancing you can do in a vehicle. Ask all passengers to sit in the rear seats of the vehicle. Preferably on the left if they are travelling alone.
We are also test-driving in-vehicle protective screens which are a temporary and removable fixture placed behind the front seats of a vehicle. Further information will be made available soon.
We will be identifing specialist regional vehicle cleaning stations. Contact your Driver Liaison Team to find your local cleaning station.
Encourage passengers to increase air-flow by opening windows, where appropriate, to ensure vehicles are well ventilated.
To minimise the handling of cash we have contactless payment options available for all journeys using AirPay or our mobile app.
Keeping our towns and cities moving safely and efficiently is not a one-way street.
Passengers also need to play their part to help protect Driver Partners by:
- Avoiding contact.
- Wearing a face-covering.
- Using adequate ventilation.
- Sitting in the back seat.
- Washing their hands.
