September 4, 2020 (IANSlife) As inter-city bus services resume gradually, the opportunity to travel comes as a huge relief to millions of people across the country. However, there will be a significant difference in the way we look at bus travel going forward.
Experts suggest that COVID-19 is here to stay and hence it is up to all of us to keep it at bay by strictly adhering to and following all the precautions and guidelines on safety, social distancing and personal hygiene. While travelling is inevitable for most people, there are clearly laid out guidelines that, when followed diligently, will help check the spread of infection and keep inter-city bus travel.
"With Unlock 4.0 underway, the nation is on its path to establishing normalcy in every respect, including travel. It is the responsibility of all stakeholders in the bus travel ecosystem to follow the safety guidelines to keep COVID-19 at bay and work together to make bus travel safe for everyone during these times,” Prakash Sangam, CEO, redBus told IANSlife.
As we implement and adapt to new standards of safety, the online bus ticketing platform shares some of the do’s and don’ts of bus travel:
To counter COVID-19, it is paramount to inculcate a culture of responsible traveling among passengers. All it takes is a little discipline and responsible behavior, which when exhibited collectively, can make a huge difference not only to the ongoing efforts in containing the virus but also to make bus travel a safe experience for everyone.
