AST has taken enhanced health and safety measures for you, our other guests, and our employees. You must follow all given instructions while traveling with AST. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and even death. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By traveling with AST, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Join us by keeping each other healthy and safe by practicing good hygiene.
While our motorcoaches were stationary, we completed a thorough detailing of the interiors. This included treating the seats.
We have been certified as an AssurClean company. You may learn more about the certification process by clicking here..
After a trip occurs, our normal cleaning process has been enhanced to include the wiping down of common touch surfaces with a bleach based solution. AST purchased a CURIS fogging system. We fog the interior of the motorcoach, then close the vehicle to allow the CURoxide product to neutralize the virus. This chemical meets the EPA guidelines, click here for more info.
Just before a trip begins, our drivers wipe down the common touch areas, including the driver’s compartment with a bleach based cleaner.
As a passenger on one of our motorcoaches, wear a protective mask, wash your hands frequently, take advantage of hand sanitizers, and follow the recommended guidelines by the CDC on illness prevention. While we do have hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes on board, we encourage you to bring your own.
When loading the motorcoach, fill the bus from back to front. As you wait in line, maintain physical distancing. It is the responsibility of the group leader to implement the appropriate distancing of their group and the use of masks. If you need assistance loading and disembarking the motorcoach, wear gloves to create that additional barrier between you and our driver’s hand.
Our bathrooms will remain unlocked. However, we recommend keeping usage of the bathrooms for emergencies only. We will stop as frequently as requested to limit the usage of the onboard facility. Please allow enough time in your itinerary to make these restroom stops.
Monitor your personal health. If you have been exposed to a contagious virus and/or have a fever or other symptoms please postpone your travel.
