    A & B Taxis, Covid-19 Strategy

    In these uncertain and challenging times, we are here for you.
  • We understand the need to work together and ensure that all our clients in and around Basildon are still transported in the safest way possible.
  • We would like to reassure you that A&B Taxis will continue to provide you all with a safe, reliable and efficient passenger service throughout this unusual period.
  • We are very thankful for the support received by our drivers and staff who have helps us keep going to make certain that we are still able to provide you with any necessary travel and deliveries.
  • We would ask all passengers not to travel in the front of the vehicle with the driver and have set the following restrictions to the capacity of vehicles:
  • Up to 4 passengers in a saloon and estate vehicles
  • Up to 5 passengers in a 5, 6, 7 or 8 seater vehicles
  • We request where possible all passsengers sit in the rear of the vehicles.
  • The vehicles are being provided with regular Covid preventative cleaning fogging mist.
    Drivers have been requested to:
    Open and close doors for passengers at both pickup and drop off​
    Open the boot for passengers belongings, shopping and luggage as usual - but drivers may ask passengers if they would prefer to load their belongings themselves unless transporting elderly, disabled, infirm or very young passengers. If drivers do handle passengers belongings, clean their hands immediately afterwards.
    Keep antibacterial spray (or similar) in their vehicle at all times to clean communal areas such as seat belts, window buttons, door handles, etc.
    Door handles, seat belts, and hard surfaces are cleaned on a regular basis.
    You can also ask a driver to wear a mask if you are one of the vulnerable.
    They are asked to clean their mobiles phones and PDAs regularly
    We ask that wherever possible, anyone travelling with our drivers does where a mask whilst on-board the vehicle, as set down in the government mandatory guidelines on the 23rd sept 2020. If you don't have a mask or forgot yours, please ask the driver he may have some available for you.
    We have also installed safety screens in some of our vehicles. This has been done to separate the driver cabin from the rest of the vehicle which should help mitigate any possible transmission. If you would like a vehicle that has one of these screens installed, please request this at the point of booking and we will be glad to assist.
    Thank you for your understanding. If you have any special requirements or would like some further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Our staff and drivers fully support the actions of the government with the instruction telling us all to follow the quidleines they have put in place to safeguard us all.

    A&B Taxis reserve the right to refuse journeys if we deem them to be outside the government guidelines !
