SAFETY DRIVE: Gulf Pinnacle Transport is currently serving 14 schools with 275 buses, transporting over 6,500 students

Dubai -  Gulf Pinnacle Transport (GPT) is now ready to ferry students back to classes when education institutions resume activities for new academic year starting next week.

GPT, the leading school transport service provider, said that it is committed to student safety and evolves a comprehensive operational plan to implement effective measures against the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the plan, the company will ensure pre-trip bus sanitisation, social distancing of students before boarding and de-boarding as well as onboard by maintaining a maximum bus capacity at 50 per cent.

Mandatory face mask, personal hygiene, temperature checks, ID-card scanning, seat belts, and post-trip sanitisation are some of the key components of the plan.

Ganesh Sivaraman, director and head of Gulf Pinnacle Transport, said: "Students safety is our top most priority and GPT will fully implement the government's advisory for school transport service providers on social distancing. "We have developed an effective initiative namely comprehensive action and response to emergency (Care) to ensure effective implementation of social distancing norms prescribed by KHDA for student transportation in new academic year." 

Sachin Gupta, general manager of Gulf Pinnacle Investments LLC (GPI), the UAE subsidiary of Gulf Pinnacle Logistics, added that the company has evolved a fool-proof school transport system to ensure safety of students.

GPT will be the first transport provider to maintain a record of body temperature of students and staff through its in-house mobile application. Moreover, GPT has also taken the disinfection requirement one step further by upgrading the mobile app that keeps record of disinfections carried out after every single trip.
