The capital’s transport regulators are exploring new ways to help taxi and private drivers during the pandemic as a survey is released to the industry.
According to Transport for London (TfL) they are looking at options to raise awareness of taxi and private hire services whilst also looking at the practical steps that can be taken to help keep licensees and passengers safe.
As part of the short survey sent out via email last week, the questions ask whether the driver is currently working during the pandemic and whether the cabbie would use a medical-grade face mask if provided by the transport authority for a limited period.
Other questions include whether a licensed driver would benefit from a video showing how to clean their vehicle and also whether display signage in vehicles about coronavirus safety measures would be beneficial.
Taxi and minicab drivers have until Friday 27 November to complete the survey.
