With more people being encouraged back to work by the Government, the operator has stepped up its services, and is reassuring local employers that sustainable travel is ready and waiting for workers in and around the town. 
Managing director Andrew Wickham said: “Our team has been welcoming back a growing number of customers over recent weeks, and we are expecting demand for bus travel to increase still further.
“Employers here will be carrying out revised risk assessments for their staff - including travel to and from work. And they need look no further than Swindon’s Bus Company for safe and reliable transport.
“We have introduced a number of measures in recent times, including enhanced cleaning regimes throughout the day and before our buses enter service - and special focus on touch points with anti-viral wipes. 
"To assist with employers carrying out risk assessments we have produced a handy ‘Back on Board’ guide, that is available to download from our website.
“Our customers can also practice social distancing whilst on board, thanks to the layout of bus seating. Passengers don’t face each other, with forward-facing and priority seats currently in sole use. We are installing hand sanitisers on each of our buses too. 
“All this, and the fact that our customers are wearing face coverings whilst travelling with us, means we can provide safe and effective transport for those returning to work.”
