The drivers are lined!

And not silver. In Mendoza, drivers of collectives, taxis and remises work separately from passengers by nylon and screens.

 Public transport drivers are  also, to some extent, part of the workers who risk getting coronavirus for fulfilling their responsibilities. And, trying to reduce that possibility, they have been arranged to circulate in their respective units in isolation. That  insulation will be effective with nylon and screens. 

The  Ministry of Public Services  of Mendoza stated that “for the term of sixty days from the date of this resolution, the companies providing the public service of regular passenger transport andnbsp; they must place in their units a physical insulation separating drivers from vehicles from passengers . ' It should be clarified that the system had already been implemented in the electric micros that made local transfers from Mendoza who returned from abroad and from other parts of the country. 

Guilds that bring together workers in the sector had been making complaints related to the implementation of security measures for the protection of bus drivers in the event of the health emergency.

 Taxis and remises too 

Days later, the Transport Directorate also provided  for a similar measure for taxi drivers or drivers   and  remises :  “For the term of sixty days from the date of publication, the permissionaries providers of the Taxis and Remis Service, and the Private Transportation Service through Electronic platforms, they shall place in their units a physical insulation separating the driver from the vehicle from passengers .” That is, Uber, Cabify and the different means of transport based on digital systems are also included.

In addition, it is indicated that the insulation must be  made of transparent material and shall not affect the driving conditions and visibility of the driver of the unit.  The regulation also emphasizes that the implementation of this measure must be carried out by the permissionaries and service holders  gradually until April 15, 2020 inclusive  , date from which it must be installed in all the units affected by the provision of the above-mentioned services.
