Fears are being put to bed somewhat as the Transport Board confirms that it is intensifying its sanitization of terminals.

The Transport Board is moving forward with plans to keep the travelling public as safe as possible.

Being proactive, the Board was already rolling out its plan to enhance the way they sanitize the bus terminals, when some Bajans caught the action on video.

The short video circulating was taken in the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal in Bridgetown. It is one of the main terminals and one of the largest on the island catering to routes in the East and South primarily.

 

Speaking to Loop News, a representative from the Barbados Transport Board explained that this is an additional step being included in their cleaning process as the fight is on to prevent the spread of COVID-19 locally.

The rep said: "General cleaning always happens but this is a new method we're employing that kills germs up to 12 hours. "We started in Fairchild Street and it's being extended to all the terminals and depots."
