We have received several member queries on this subject and unfortunately with car sharing, social distancing is not possible unless this is with members of your own family.

We have heard of one-member company who has hired a minibus. In order to achieve the required 2 metre social distancing, they have introduced the following control measures:

  • Supplying PPE for the driver (information & training)
  • Having seating marked for employees’ other seats marked as ‘not for seating’ used as distancing,
  • Windows open to provide adequate ventilation and air conditioning off,
  • A phased seating of passengers getting on – occupying the back seating first down to the front and vice/versa for getting off,
  • This together with a sanitising regime after each journey by spraying the seats and contact points.

The government guidance states as follows:

When using a private vehicle to make a journey that is essential, cars should only be shared by members of the same household. Those who normally share a car with people who are not members of their own household for a journey that is essential, e.g. getting to work, should consider alternatives such as walking, cycling and public transport where you maintain a distance of 2 metres from others.

If the journey is essential, such as travel to work, and there is no option but to share a car with people who are not part of the same household, journeys should be shared with the same individuals and with the minimum number of people at any one time.

Good ventilation (i.e. keeping the windows open) and facing away from each other may help to reduce the risk of transmission. Private vehicles that are used by people from multiple households should be cleaned regularly using gloves and standard cleaning products with emphasis on handles and other areas where passengers may touch surfaces.
