Transporting Persons In Your Vehicle
When Transporting someone else
- Wear a mask at all times, even if you have no passengers.
- Talk as little as possible inside the car to keep the air clean of droplets from your mouth.
- Ask chatty passengers to do the same.
- Negotiate with potential customers via the open windows.
- Do not open the doors and speak loud and clear so that they are able to understand you from a distance
- Ask passengers to get in at the back if possible.
- Lock your front doors to keep people from entering your vehicle.
- Do not take more passengers if you have other passengers.
- Sanitize your hands after receiving money.
- To protect your hands from too much sanitizing wear gloves or have a bag ready where people can drop the money in so that you don’t need to touch it.
When being Transported by someone else
- When asking for a ride and negotiating the price, do so at a safe distance through the car window without touching the car until you’re certain you want to get in.
- Speak loud and clear so that they are able to understand you from a distance.
- Do not speak directly into their window, especially if you don’t have any protective mask on.
- Sanitize your hands before getting into the car.
- Opt for sitting in the back of the car if possible.
- If there are other passengers that are not part of your group, then wait for another empty vehicle.
- Talk as little as possible to keep the air clean of droplets from your mouth.
- Keep your mask on.
- If you need to sneeze or cough do so with your head pointing away from any other passenger and into your creased elbow.
- Don’t unnecessarily touch things during the ride.
- Try to pay exactly what you need, avoid taking change money, and give an extra big tip if it doesn’t hurt you financially.
- After getting out of the car and having closed the door, put away your money and sanitize your hands.
