Public transport is safe however, like with everything else, a series of precautionary measures must be implemented to avoid contagion. Of course private transportation is safer in this aspect but we must not forget the many benefits of public transport such as less traffic and less pollution.
First of all, we remind you how important it is not to leave home if you have any symptoms compatible with Covid-19, if you have tested positive or if you have been in contact with a positive person in the last 10 days. It is up to all of us to prevent its spread.
When traveling on public transport, contact with surfaces such as handrails, doors, windows, seats, etc. should be avoided. In general, doors should open automatically at each stop. Also avoid touching your face. If you have touched something, we must disinfect our hands or wash them thoroughly. We recommend washing your hands even if you have not touched any surface.
We should also keep a social distance of at least a meter and a half. It is advisable to leave one seat free between passengers and of course, always wear a mask.
It is also advisable not to talk to other users or on the telephone, this way we avoid spreading micro particles, nor eat or drink during the journey.
If you decide to take public transport, try not to use it during rush hours to avoid crowds.
When paying for the journey, try to use travel passes and pay with a bank card. Try not to touch the hand rail when getting on and off a bus and try not to use the lift. If you take a lift, there should only be one person inside at a time.
When traveling with children, we must make sure they also follow all the rules. Here we address the correct use of masks with children. We emphasize that children should always wear a mask when traveling on public passenger transport, even if accompanied by family members. They only need to use one if they are over 3 years old to avoid possible choking.
