As the COVID -19 crisis continues, Ecocabs taxis, based in Hexham, has adapted to minimise the spread of the virus. Here are some of the safety precautions our taxis have in place.

  1. We have added partition screens to our vehicles. This keeps contact between our passengers and taxi drivers to a minimum.
  2. Each vehicle is disinfected after each journey  and deep cleaned at the end of every shift with NHS approved disinfectant. We had already earned a reputation for clean vehicles before Covid, but we are really going that extra mile now.
  3. Drivers have been issued with virus prevention packs, which include gloves, hand gel, N95 masks, NHS-approved disinfectant and wipes.

This latest health crisis has been a particularly difficult experience for everyone in the country. At Ecocabs, we are always striving to be ahead  in all aspects of the taxi business. We made many improvements in our working practices over 2019. Luckily, this meant that we could adjust quickly when Covid-19 hit the UK

For instance, our investments in the latest technology software and cloud computing meant that we were able to offer continue delivering a first-class service whilst our office staff worked remotely from home. They continue to do so.
