CLEAN UP KITS


The Point to Point Transport Commissioner and Transport for NSW are making one-time use clean up kits available for point to point transport vehicles to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.


Clean up kits are used in the event of a passenger spreading droplets, such as coughing or sneezing, so point to point transport drivers can clean themselves or their vehicle surfaces to potentially reduce the spread of infection.


Drivers should report all incidents and the use of clean up kits to service providers.


The kit contains gloves, saline eye wash, antiseptic swabs, soap and first aid hand towels and comes in a resealable plastic bag.


All point to point transport service providers will be eligible for one clean up kit free of charge per point to point vehicle, and they will be available from vehicle sanitisation stations located in Albury, Alexandria, Central Coast, Dubbo, Leumeah, Tamworth, Newcastle and Prestons.


If service providers are unable to obtain clean up kits from a vehicle sanitisation station, kits can be ordered via the Point to Point Transport Commissioner Industry Portal.


Service providers are expected to distribute the kits to vehicles over the coming weeks.
