VDV Report 8002: “Recommendations on the Cleaning of the
Interior of Public Transport Vehicles and Further Measures to Prevent Spreading of Infectious Diseases”
VDV Report 8002 gives an overview of topics with strongly increasing importance.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced public transport companies to take up many new and unprecedented challenges. The primary objective of the public transport companies is to protect passengers and drivers from getting infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. To keep up public life and the services for the public, it is essential to offer suitable public transport services that consider the pandemic situation. Moreover, it is crucial to reduce the passengers’ feeling of uncertainty to which this exceptional situation has led and to win back lost customers.
This VDV Report is intended to support the public transport companies in their effort to purposively clean and disinfect public transport vehicles to a sufficient degree. On the one hand, it sums up initial insights and experience and, on the other hand, it includes recommendations on how public transport vehicles can be designed to facilitate easy cleaning and how the drivers can be protected during a pandemic caused by a virus infection.
This VDV Report is the first practical guideline which both includes the key messages and goes into details with more special topics.
