Lamers Bus Lines COVID-19 Update

Posted In | Safety

Thank you for being a valued customer of Lamers Bus Lines.

As new developments arise around the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share the proactive steps we’re taking to keep our passengers healthy and safe during these uncertain times. Our No. 1 concern has always been the safety of our passengers and employees.

Currently the U.S. travel ban does not include domestic travel, only certain areas of international travel. We understand that despite this, your decision to travel is personal. We would like to assure you that we’re committed to keeping your health and safety at the forefront of our thoughts.

Bus cleanliness is a priority and we have been evaluating our cleaning procedures to make sure they are the most effective they can be. Coronavirus (COVID-19) information is changing rapidly and being updated continuously. With the assistance of the International Motorcoach Group (IMG), American Bus Association (ABA), and our industry partners, Lamers is receiving the latest and most accurate Coronavirus (COVID-19) information available.  We will continue to adjust our policies and procedures as needed to ensure safe travel for our passengers and a safe work environment of our employees.

Please see recommendations from the American Bus Association.

Currently we have drivers and staff disinfecting all of the buses at our terminals. In addition, we are making additional cleaning materials available for staff to use in the buses when they are on the road to target more frequently touched surfaces, like hand-holds, railings, and grab surfaces.

We currently have three products available that contain disinfecting ingredients that claim to kill 99.9% of viruses on hard and non-porous surfaces. These are products that have been an established part of our cleaning process since long before the virus outbreak.

·        DDDS WINTERGREEN: Mixed in spray bottles, all hard surfaces and mopping floors

·        CLAIRE DISINFECTANT SPRAY Q: Aerosol can, all hard surfaces 

·        TB QUANT QT BOTTLES: Pump sprayer, all hard surfaces

At our upcoming safety meetings we will further discuss with our drivers the disinfecting protocol. This process will continue to evolve and be used in the future, but we are confident we are keeping our school buses and motor coaches as clean as possible.

Management will do our best to monitor our protocols and the disinfecting of the buses going forward.

Please know that we are monitoring COVID-19 developments closely and how they pertain to our transportation industry, and we will update this information as necessary.

Thank you,
Lamers Bus Lines Inc.

We are respectfully asking all of our customers to please be patient as we connect with our distressed travel partners to discuss/ascertain refunds. This will take time. More time than most might think but rest assured we are doing our best to work through this unparalleled matter.
