ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nationwide motorcoach provider National Charter Bus is aiding businesses by offering employee shuttle services to and from essential service offices and reopened workplaces, like hospitals and airlines.
Rather than having employees drive and park personal vehicles or struggle to maintain social distancing practices on public transit, companies can establish custom routes and schedules based on shift transfers and office locations, so employees will only need to commute with coworkers they see on a daily basis anyway.
The bus company is targeting these employee shuttle programs in major cities like Washington D.C., New York City, Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco, but these services can be established anywhere businesses may need commuter transport.
Along with the introduction of this service, National Charter Bus is taking steps to make group travel by charter bus as safe as possible.
Bus drivers in the company’s network have received COVID-specific safety training and are required to wear face masks, while vehicles are regularly cleaned according to the CDC’s latest guidelines regarding bus sanitization. Providers in the bus company’s network have been encouraged to work with HVAC suppliers to improve ventilation filter efficiency to provide portable HEPA filtration units when possible.
It is recommended for clients to set their own onboard safety measures while on the road—mandatory face masks for passengers, preboarding temperature checks, etc.—which National Charter Bus has agreed to help enforce. Customers can also request rear-entry coaches to promote single-direction foot traffic, or larger motorcoaches with staggered blocked-off seats so passengers can sit spaced 6 feet apart during their journey.
While the company has always offered flexible reservation modifications, recent changes to its cancellation policy make pandemic group travel even easier—reservations can now be cancelled up to 14 days prior to the scheduled departure for a full refund.
