STUDENTS RETURNING TO SCHOOLS FROM 11th MAY

Ballina Buslines will be delivering bus services in accordance with Transport for NSW COVID-19 Precautions for Public Transport Services advice, issued on 7th May 2020. This advice has been developed with regard to Safe Work Australia’s guidance for Public Transport.

Specifically in regard to school students and school services the following information is important;

  • Social distancing does not apply to dedicated school services
  • No school student will be left at a bus stop

Further, Ballina Buslines will be encouraging social distancing on buses where patronage levels permit. The seats immediately behind the driver and adjacent to the driver will be isolated to minimise contact between the driver and passengers.

Additional cleaning has been introduced on buses since the outbreak of COVID-19. The additional measures include;

  • Additional cleaning of all touch points including hand holds, stanchions, bell pushes and seat top rails prior to commencement of all shifts both in the morning and afternoon, with hospital grade disinfectant.
  • Drivers will be carrying out additional cleaning during any layover.

Ballina Buslines will continue to monitor processes and practices as students return in increased numbers. All advice from TfNSW will be strictly adhered to.

Please contact the office on 02 6686 3666 if you require any further information.
