Our focus on protecting and caring for people has made Volvo Buses a leader in safety. Now we are taking one step further. The various consequences of Covid-19 affect us all, privately and at work. During times of uncertainty, it is more important than ever to do what we can to stop spreading the infection. We are working in real time to keep our employees and passengers safe, and support our customers’ business. The Clean & Care program includes a lineup of protective equipment for both old and new models. Contact your Volvo representative today to find out more.
We at Volvo Buses are here for you to ensure that your coach is clean and safe for passengers and drivers alike. Here are some of our recommendations and our ongoing initiatives.
General maintenance recommendations:
The ECO3 disinfector is one of the most effective ways to proactively work against bacteria and virus. This device continuously produces ozone gas that cleans the air and reduces particles and organic substances on all surfaces with which it comes into contact, resulting in widespread disinfection of the bus interior.
INTA - National Institute of Aerospace Technology
SGS - General Society of Surveillance
As an alternative to purifiers ECO3, it is possible to install high-efficiency anti-viral air filters. With the high air volume turnover in the cabin (typically 80% fresh air and 20% re-circulated), the filters are substantially reducing virus droplets and aerosols as well as bacteria.
To reduce contact with passengers and minimise the risk of virus transmission, these partitions are a good choice for making the driver’s environment safer. Choose both or only side or rear partition.
Make it easy for drivers and passengers to maintain good hand hygiene and increase the cleanliness of the entire bus. Easy access for people who enter or exit the coach, or who use the lavatory.
Start the day or a new trip with a sanitised vehicle by using the Ozone Generator, a disinfection device that performs complete disinfection of the vehicle. This method requires an empty vehicle during cleaning and 20 minutes afterwards, making it a good cleaning choice during the lunch break or at the end of the working day.
