Using your car for Rides Share and staying safe with COVID-19

As we know, COVID-19 is not a virus to mess with. There are many precautions to take in reducing the chances of spread and killing any virus on surfaces before spreading. Luckily in Australia we are compliant’ with regulations that help keep us safe, but here is a list of ways to keep yourself and anyone who enters your car safe.

In comparison to public transport- cars are a good way to maintain social distancing and to manage who has come and gone and what has been touched or sneezed on. If you are using ride share options to get to and from places, such as Uber, Taxi, Rydo or DiDi, then follow our tips for a safe ride below:

  • Sit in the back seat as a rider. Separate yourself from the driver to keep both parties safer.
  • Try to use a service that encourages phone/ touchless payments.
  • If you do need to give cash or touch the EFTPOS machine make sure to sanitise before and after.
  • Sanitise after using fuel pumps & tire pressure pumps, Eftpos machines and any public surface that could carry COVID.
