Free PPE packs for taxi drivers

Taxi and private hire vehicle drivers in Wales will be able to claim a free pack of high quality PPE and vehicle cleaning materials, funded by Welsh Government.

The move is intended to increase confidence in travelling safely for drivers and passengers.

The pack contains medical grade re-usable face coverings and hand sanitiser, as well as all-purpose sanitiser, cloths, wipes and gloves so vehicles can be effectively cleaned between passengers. Medical grade face coverings have been chosen to provide enhanced protection over standard face coverings.

Welsh Government is strongly recommending for drivers to wear face coverings when transporting passengers, if it does not interfere with their ability to drive safely. The chosen face coverings are intended to be comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The legal requirement for passengers to wear face coverings remains in place.
