Some 256 buses are sterilised on a daily basis to ensure the protection of the people using public transport, according to the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA).
The emirate's public transport regulator launched an additional programme for the cleanliness and sterilisation of public transport, as a preventive measure in light of the outbreak of Covid-19 in a number of countries.
Youssef Suleiman Al Hammadi, director of the Procurement Department at the SRTA, stated that the authority is continuing to sterilise and clean all means of transportation. He said that there are 116 intercity buses that are sterilised daily before and after the trips by specialised companies.
Al Hammadi added that 140 public transport buses are also sterilised in the same manner daily, in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Prevention. The SRTA has directed the franchise companies to sterilise the taxis continuously.
