Veezu Introduces Additional Safety Measures to Protect Against COVID-19

Veezu, the UK’s fastest growing taxi and private hire business, has introduced new additional measures as the prevention of COVID-19 becomes a way of everyday life and residents across each of its regional hubs seek a safe and convenient alternative to public transport.

Veezu has always prioritised the highest safety standards for passengers and Driver Partners and has made face coverings available to all Driver Partners as well as trialling innovative in-vehicle protective screens to help separate Driver Partners from passengers.

To minimise passengers handling cash, contactless payment options are available on all bookings made via Veezu’s mobile apps, including that of A2B Radio Cars, Amber Cars, Dragon Taxis, Go Carz and V Cars, and through its new SMS payment solution, AirPay.

Driver Partners and their vehicles have access to specialist regional vehicle cleaning stations in another effort introduced by Veezu, to demonstrate the company’s continued commitment to moving passengers safely around their communities.

Passengers are advised – in line with UK Government guidance – to avoid contact and sit in the back seat while travelling, to wear their own face covering and to wash their hands before and after travelling.

Nathan Bowles, CEO, said: “We will continue to deliver the efficient service we always have done to ensure easy journeys for Driver Partners as well as passengers, but with additional safety measures in place.

“None of these will impact on the smooth running of our journeys – they have been introduced to make travelling with us even easier. We continue to be committed to seamless and safe journeys.

“We will keep our towns and cities moving safely 24/7. Key workers know to turn to us for a hassle-free, reliable journey to work and we will continue to support them in any way we can.”
