The NSW Taxi Council has received an update from the Point to Point Transport Commission regarding the launch of Sydney's third point to point transport vehicle sanitisation station located in Leumeah, to reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keep drivers and passengers safe. This comes as a response to COVID-19 from Transport for NSW and the Point to Point Transport Commission.
This is a complimentary service for all point to point transport vehicles (taxis and hire vehicles, including rideshare). They are entitled to one sanitisation, per vehicle, per day, performed by staff on-site.
Vehicle sanitisation includes the disinfection of high touch point areas outside and inside of the vehicle including: door handles, boot handle, window controls, steering wheel, visors, centre console, gear stick, handbrake, grip handles, glove box, dashboard, seatbelts, seats, headrests, mobile phone holders, cup holders, fuel door, fuel cap, meters and payment equipment. This is not a car wash service.
Under point to point transport laws, service providers have a primary duty of care to ensure the health and safety of drivers and other persons, including passengers, so far as is reasonably practicable, while they’re engaged in providing a passenger service. This includes taking steps to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
The NSW Government is assisting the point to point transport industry during the Coronavirus outbreak, with the aim of reducing the spread of the virus to ensure driver and passenger safety is upheld.
Point to point transport operators continue to provide an essential service for people in NSW.
Further information and locations can be found on the point to point Sanitisation Station webpage.
WHERE: 7/4 Grange Road, Leumeah NSW 2560
WHEN: From Thursday 6 August 2020, operating from 7am to 7pm between Monday and Saturday.
