The company’s protection plan covers all high contact areas involved with transporting passengers.

Alliance Bus Group is offering a line of products that help enable operators to protect the safety of passengers and drivers from COVID-19 on their vehicles.

In helping to stop the spread of COVID-19, Alliance Bus Group has introduced a comprehensive protection plan covering all high contact areas involved with transporting passengers to help provide a safe transportation environment.

"Whether you’re concerned about decontaminating all contact areas within the bus, protecting the driver, reducing passenger exposure via contact points and re-circulating air, or all of the above, we have tools available to assist you in safely running your operation," said Andy Rolfe, executive vice president of Alliance Bus Group. “A big part of our Along for the Whole Ride philosophy is anticipating our customer needs and reacting accordingly. We hope these safety systems can help passengers and drivers see the commitment all operators place on health and safety and ultimately lead to improved ridership levels and more transportation across the country in these unprecedented times.”

Alliance’s system utilizes a four step Green Light methodology that begins with a thorough decontamination of the vehicle using a true gas that is more effective in penetrating all areas. Step two is ensuring the driver is protected utilizing an adaptable and customizable enclosure. Next, the passenger area is retrofitted to ensure social distancing, as well as making recommended best practices. Finally, A/C purification systems help make sure air that is re-circulated is clean and safe in the current operating environment.

These solutions are applicable to all types of vehicles – including mobility vans, transit buses, shuttle buses, tour coaches, paratransit buses, etc. – and across all industries.
