Keeping you safe during the Coronavirus pandemic

Keeping You Safe During The Coronavirus Pandemic

In order to keep our staff, passengers and the community safe during the Coronavirus pandemic, CDC Victoria has put in place a variety of extra safety practices at our depots, offices and on board our buses.

  • All staff, visitors and contractors at CDC depots (Victoria wide) have their temperature taken when they first arrive at the bus depots.
  • CDC has worked closely with Government and have a “No cash handling” policy on all buses. Passengers must have a topped card as drivers can no longer handle cash.
  • All Staff have been issued with hand sanitiser and encouraged to wash their hands often.
  • All our buses are cleaned regularly and routinely disinfected to stop the spread of germs (includes daily sanitization cleaning of all touch points and driver’s cabin).
  • Buses are completely sanitised regularly with the use of fogging machines with antibacterial and sanitising mist.
  • CDC has a Buffer zone in place on all buses which blocks off the front 2 seats. This allows us to keep our drivers and passengers safe.
  • CDC promotes social distancing practices at all depots and offices with blocked off seats, etc in lunchrooms to keep staff safe.
  • We will be providing an on-site free flu vaccination for all staff and a reimbursement program for staff who want to do flu vaccination at their own doctors, etc.
  • CDC promotes flexible work at home arrangements for admin staff (where possible) and the use of online meeting spaces for meetings/ discussions, etc.
