COVID-19/Coronavirus Notice

 

The Coronavirus (COVID-19):

A message for our passengers and service users

 

In the wake of this unprecedented situation Green Community Travel ltd has been taking steps to safeguard our passengers & staff.

 

The team has been working tirelessly to implement the latest government advice and establish the best way of providing essential support for out passengers.  We are constantly monitoring the situation and in close contact with the local authority so all stakeholders have access to the best advice.

 

This is a very fluid and fast moving situation so for the very latest information on our services please see our Facebook page. We will be continuing to make regular updates, passing on important advice, collated information & useful announcements: https://facebook.com/GreenCommunityTravel

 

WE ARE OPEN. Community Transport is considered an essential service.  We do not count as public transport so if people need travel essentially (especially if you fall into a vulnerable group) please do consider us. 01454228706

 *We are collecting prescriptions for people and are also working with Morrisons in Yate to get people shopping. Call us on a Monday and Tuesday (by 12noon) and we will take your requests. We will then deliver the shopping on a Thursday. Payment will be taken for the shopping over the phone along with a small delivery fee. Call 0845 2410985 to get added to the list. Once on our list, Lauren will call you each Monday (if we haven’t heard from you) to take your wish list!*

 

 

  • All our office staff are now working from home & our office is closed to visitors.  Phone lines have been diverted to our mobiles so please bear with us as lines may be busier than normal.
  • We have our Ring & Ride service running each day for essential travel only.  Essential travel is medical appointments or shopping if you have no one else who can help you.
  • We have increased our cleaning regimen. Buses are being cleaned regularly with antibacterial cleaners. Hand rails & high traffic areas are bing wiped down with antibacterial wipes after each passenger.
  • Mobility equipment (rollators, walking sticks etc) should be cleaned with an antibacterial cleaner ahead of using the service.
  • Passengers are required to use the provided sanitising gel before boarding the bus.
  • Passengers will be seated 2 meters away from the driver & other passengers wherever possible. 
  • Drivers will be wearing latex gloves*
  • Passengers presenting with symptoms will be refused travel. If a passenger develops symptoms in transit they will be taken home immediately.
  • Passengers should wash their hands for 20 seconds before and after they have been on public transport and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues, disposing of the tissue in the onboard bin.
  • Frequently clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are touched regularly, using your standard cleaning products. 
  • Advise passengers they should not travel if they are feeling unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) - a new, continuous cough or a high temperature. This will also help to protect others from infection
  • Transport will be refused to any passenger that fails to comply with the required procedures.

 

We will continue to update these and other procedures as new advice becomes available.  Please keep a close eye on our Facebook page.

 

We know this is going to be a strange time for all of us, but if you are worried,  if you want a chat then please call.

We can't wait to see you all again, please remember we are still here for you. Stay Safe, Stay Inside & WASH HANDS!
