Coronavirus: Uber and Addison Lee to install protective screens

 

Taxi firms Addison Lee and Uber have announced new safety measures as the government looks to ease coronavirus restrictions and people return to work.

Addison Lee will fit perspex partition screens between drivers and passengers across its 4,000 vehicles next week.

And Uber is paying the AA to install partitions in 400 cars in Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham as part of an initial pilot, BBC reported.

Both firms are also distributing free protective equipment to drivers.

The plans follow calls for improved protections for drivers and passengers.
