Public transport

Public transport poses some unique challenges for public health and safety.

With large numbers of people unavoidably in close proximity to each other, it’s easy for germs to spread through direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces.

Special areas of focus include seats, volume and air controls, trays, seat belts; arm rests, handrails, doors, overhead storage, counters, security check facilities, washrooms, etc.

Airborne pathogens are also a threat in the enclosed spaces of airplanes, buses, trains, etc.
