Private transport during current climate

Mar 30, 2020

Privately transport your groups to help stop the spread of Coronavirus Public transport can be the ideal place for respiratory diseases such as Coronavirus to spread. BMC Infectious Diseases published research that noted that those who use public transport during such outbreaks are 6 times more likely to pick up acute respiratory infections.

While there are many precautions that we could take whilst using public transport to help reduce the spread of the disease such as: cleaning/sanitizing your hands after using public transport and not biting your nails or touching your face whilst travelling – there is a much easier way to do this, travel privately.

We hope that regular hand cleaning is common practice, but for many people so is touching your face or biting your nails! As hard as we may try to limit the amount of times we touch our face or bite our nails, sometimes it’s just not possible to stop altogether!

Here are just some of the reasons why you should use private transport from The Kings Ferry Group…

1. High standard of cleaning on private vehicles

At National Express Transport Solutions we are taking extra precautionary measures during this time to ensure that the standard of our vehicles enables our customers to have peace of mind whilst travelling on them.

We are ensuring that all of our vehicles are fully cleaned with appropriate cleaning products after every hire to make sure that every precaution is taken to keep them properly sanitised. All vehicles go through a rigorous cleaning regime on a daily basis as standard. Our engineering departments are also reviewing and implementing further cleaning precautions to ensure that there are surgical standard cleansing of high contact areas on board our coaches.

2. Control over who is on-board

Travelling privately also allows you to choose how many people use the vehicle during your hire – giving you both control and peace of mind. Whether you require transport for a small group of 10 or you need to move larger groups of over 800 people, only you, your group and the driver(s) will be on-board.

3. Door to door service

With cancellations of mass gatherings happening all over the globe, it is understandable why you may want to limit the amount of time you spend in crowded areas. Sometimes, this can’t be helped. But if you still need to head out and about, our private transport solutions are able to pick you up right near your front door and drop you off as close as possible to your destination.

4. We can cater for all group sizes

Whether you are a couple, a small group of 10 or a larger group – we can help you reach your destination no matter your group size. We can provide transport solutions from executive car, to minibus, vintage bus and double decker coaches.

5. London Commuter Service

Our London Coach Commuter Service can help you travel from the Medway towns and straight into London, reducing the amount of time you spend on public transport. Our services travel from the Isle of Sheppey all the way through to Strood, New Ash Green and Vigo, then directly through to areas such as Canary Wharf and Westminster.

Our London commuter service vehicles are also used for private hire, so they undergo the same rigorous daily cleaning procedures. Using these vehicles will help you to reduce the amount of time spent on-board public transport, thus limiting the amount of contact you may have with shared surfaces that do not go under such rigorous procedures as those on our vehicles.
