Sterilization and Deodorization Measures on Sightseeing Buses (update 2020.05.29)
(Started on October 14, 2019, latest update)
Since 2010, our buses have been equipped with the hyphochlorus acid sterilizers in order to guarantee proper disinfection and deodorization of our sightseeing buses and night express buss (*currently not operating). However, due to the concern of spraying these disinfectants will lead to electronic devices to malfunction and causes discomfort to passengers, we have decided to remove it from all the buses.
For this reason, our crew will be required to disinfect the buses with sodium hypochlorite; by Pisguard Co. before and after operations. In addition, in order to encourage our passengers to disinfect their hands regularly, we installed a no-touch hand sanitizers equipped with UV automatic sensors in order to avoid cross contamination from passenger to passenger.
For the ventilation inside the buses, a forced exhaust (ventilation) and natural ventilation at the rear of the vehicle are installed. In the "Automatic Operation Mode", a comfortable indoor environment can be experienced by the automatic switching of the indoor and outdoor air circulation.
We would also ask for your understanding since our crew will be required to wear masks in accordance to company regulations in order to prevent further infection spread.
* The cases in the above policy are based on our company's installation cases.
* Please check the ingredients, etc. on the homepage of "Pis Guard".
