UCB are a multinational biopharmaceutical company with UK offices based in Slough. Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Stewarts Coaches were called on to provide two staff shuttle routes from Paddington & Reading to the UCB offices in Slough to allow staff to travel to work safely and avoid the use of public transport as advised by the Government. This hire utilised 3 vehicles.
Our project team worked to review UCB's requirements and produced timetables to guarantee that staff arrived to work on time. Passenger numbers were also reviewed to ensure that the vehicles provided allowed UCB staff to travel on board safely and within the recommended 2m social distancing.
In total 3 vehicles were utilised and each of these was fitted with brand new air purification systems, anti-bac stations, PPE, signage to display which seats are to be used and driver safety screens. After each journey, vehicles were fully cleaned and once back in the depot vehicles were fogged each evening.
"The employee shuttles provided by National Express Transport Solutions have been key in helping us to protect our teams against the risk of COVID-19. These services have been invaluable and have provided our teams with complete peace of mind during their commute.
The team at National Express Transport Solutions were swift in helping us set up a service that consists of multiple coaches throughout the day, all of which adhere to social distancing guidelines and have allowed for the safe transport of our employees to our sites.
On behalf of all employees within our business, I would like to thank you for enabling us to get our teams back to work safely and securely. You have all been an incredible help, and your drivers have been a pleasure to work with.
We look forward to continuing to work with you and utilising your services over the coming months."
