SBS Transit steps up cleaning schedules

As a precautionary measure in response to the evolving Wuhan coronavirus situation, SBS Transit has increased the frequency of cleaning for its premises and vehicles with immediate effect.

At the bus interchanges, high commuter touch points such as queue rails, seats, passenger service centre counters as well as taps, door knobs, flush buttons in the toilets will be cleaned and wiped down with disinfectants about once every two hours.

At the MRT/LRT stations, public surface areas will be cleaned at least thrice a day with disinfectants. The areas include handrails, bench seats, lift buttons, fare gates, ticketing machines, locality maps, toilet door handles and taps.  

In addition to the usual end of day cleaning, bus interiors will undergo an additional disinfection every week. Train interiors will be cleaned and disinfected daily during engineering hours for areas such as the grab poles, overhead handles, seats, windows, door panels and train floors.

The enhanced cleaning regime is in addition to precautionary measures we have put in place to safeguard the health of passengers and employees. These are in line with the latest guidelines stipulated by the Authorities.
