Transportation Bureau Strengthens Inspection of Taxi Contact-based Registration

Kaohsiung NewsIn response to changing pandemic situation, the Transportation Bureau and the Police Department work together to strengthen the inspection of taxi pandemic prevention practices for the purpose of public transportation safety and call on taxi drivers and passengers to conduct contact-based registration via text messages to make taxi rides safer during the pandemic.
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced on August 23 that the pandemic alert would remain at Level 2. With more passengers taking public transportation, the Transportation Bureau continues to dispatch staff to crowded places, such as THSR Zuoying Station, major MRT stations, and Kaohsiung Main Station, to promote the pandemic prevention targeting taxi drivers queuing at pickup areas, telling drivers to thoroughly disinfect their taxis and asking passengers to wear masks at all times in the car and conduct contact-based registration via text messages.
The Transportation Bureau has formed a joint inspection team with the Police Department and motor vehicle offices to inspect cars for business and personal uses from time to time. Most taxi drivers carry random passengers and are therefore considered the first line of defense against the pandemic. In light of this, for three days from the 17th, the Transportation Bureau and the Police Department went to THSR Zuoying Station to inspect the implementation of contact-based registration via text messages and promote thorough disinfection, striving to ensure the safety of taxi drivers and passengers during the pandemic.
On-site inspection results showed that both taxi drivers and passengers wore masks, QR codes for contact-based registration have been posted inside taxis, and all passengers were willing to scan the QR codes for the CECC’s contact tracing purpose. The prevention awareness exhibited by taxi drivers and passengers shows that the government’s advocacy efforts in this regard are proven effective.
The Transportation Bureau reiterates that taxi drivers must post the QR codes in their taxis for contact-based registration and disinfect their taxis thoroughly, and that passengers must always wear masks and complete contact-based registration by sending text messages.
The Transportation Bureau reminds drivers and passengers to follow the measures of wearing masks, disinfect frequently, and conduct contact-based registration via text messages during the pandemic, so as to protect everyone by ensuring safe taxi rides together.
