New clean-up kits are available for taxis and other point-to-point transport service providers in the Dubbo electorate, in an attempt to help keep drivers and passengers safe during COVID-19.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the NSW Government continues to support the point-to-point transport industry by providing free COVID clean-up kits for operators, on top of the eight vehicle sanitisation stations already rolled out across parts of the state.
“We know people in the community rely on point-to-point transport services to move around, and these kits will provide them with the reassurance they need to continue using these services,” Mr Saunders said.
“We’ve already rolled out a vehicle sanitisation station in Dubbo, which not only slows the potential spread of COVID-19, but also helps keep the local economy ticking by employing 14 people.”
Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said the new kits would be available for collection online or from the Dubbo vehicle sanitisation station.
“We’ve made it super convenient for drivers to collect these kits while their vehicles are sanitised at the station. Already we’ve seen 546 vehicles use this station, so we know it’s making a difference to drivers and their passengers,” Mr Toole said.
“These new kits will have gloves, saline eye wash, antiseptic swabs, soap, and first-aid hand towels stored in a resealable plastic bag to make it easy for drivers to use.”
Service providers who are unable to obtain COVID clean-up kits from the Dubbo vehicle sanitisation station will be able to order from the Point to Point Transport Commissioner Industry Portal.
