UCB Pharma Ltd – The provision of COVID compliant vehicles from April to August 2020
Locations: Slough
The challenge

To provide two staff shuttles, one from Paddington (two vehicles) and the other from Reading (one vehicle) 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.

The response

A project team was put together to review the Clients requirements and produce timetables to ensure that staff arrived to work on time. We also reviewed the passenger numbers to ensure that the vehicles provided could allow the passengers to travel on board with the recommended 2m distancing. Each vehicle was fitted with new air purification systems, anti-bac stations, PPE, signage to display which seats are to be used, driver screens and also fully cleaned after each journey, including being fogged each evening when back at the depot.


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 into 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.
