“California is the epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis in the US, and keeping public transit safe and operational during this time is crucial for ensuring that the public can continue to travel safely,” said Marc Ottolini, CEO of AirLabs. “Professional drivers are one of the most at-risk groups from COVID-19 and forward-thinking public transit operators across the world are deploying our innovative air cleaning technology to cut the risk of infection for drivers, protect them against air pollution and keep services running.”
In addition to new technology, Turlock Transit has implemented a range of measures to protect drivers and passengers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including additional disinfecting measures for buses, passenger limits on-board to aid social distancing, provision of free hand sanitizer and face masks, if needed, and a requirement for everyone to wear face masks while travelling. Turlock Transit staff continues to explore new technology, such as whole bus air sanitization systems, and monitors developments in the transit industry to ensure Turlock is well positioned to implement those enhancements.
