The arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic created restrictions on the availability of safe public transportation. The safety issues affected all forms of travel and personnel involved.
For the taxi industry which operates as an essential service to many this was a specific issue due to the enclosed and restricted space of private passenger vehicles.
mobilityxl’s taxi screen which is fully EU approved provides the capability of shielding the driver from the passenger. This product also has the benefits of not restricting access and can easily and quickly be fitted or removed without permanent fixings.
This diversification and application of an existing product has enabled the safe operation of fleets of vehicles during this unprecedented time in our history providing safe passage and a lifeline for many. In addition to taxi usage the NHS adopted this for safe patient transfer and doctor on call vehicles.
Due to the testing of the product we were secure in the knowledge that the product is safe and additionally due to the fit of the product, provided a safe bubble for the passenger and driver to travel in safety whist not reducing the ability to communicate.
