Aiming to provide the best possible protection to stop drivers contracting the coronavirus or other infections, MAN Truck & Bus is now offering a hygienic protective barrier that can be retrofitted on city buses, intercity buses and coaches. Precautions will need to be taken to protect bus company employees, especially once the current spacing and sanitation rules are gradually relaxed. Front-door boarding is still prohibited and the front rows are still off-limits on many buses. As soon as these are reopened to passengers, the driver will automatically be re-exposed to much more contact with new people, whether to answer their questions or sell tickets. MAN Truck & Bus worked closely together with bus companies in a variety of countries when discussing and implementing its ideas and solutions for protecting drivers. The aim is to ensure that these satisfied the needs and preferences of operators as effectively as possible.

For the new MAN Lion’s City generation, the protective screen for the driver’s workplace can either be installed as a factory-fit or retrofitted as part of MAN’s After Sales service. Customers can choose between a fully sealed version and a version with an access point for ticketing.

The tall dividing screen is made of shatter-resistant polycarbonate and installed with an aluminium section, while the bottom panel is made of satin glass.

The first retrofits have already been completed in Plauen, including a hygienic safety solution for VfL Wolfsburg’s MAN Lion’s Coach L. MAN has also retrofitted dividing screens to the two Lion’s City E models being field-tested by Hamburg mass transit operators

In addition and as a matter of course, recommended regional, national and international hygiene and distancing rules stipulated or recommended by the relevant authorities should be adhered to in
