Updated Cleaning Procedures

Be Safe Chicago
Be Safe North Lawndale

On behalf of Aries Charter Transportation, we look forward to returning to operating a safe and reliable operation for our customers and staff. As a family owned business for over 30 years, the Aries Team takes great pride in our commitment to safe, reliable and value driven service.

As a result of these trying times, Aries has incorporated and will continue to incorporate additional best practices in our facilities and on our buses to combat the spread of COVID-19.  The health and safety of our staff and our passengers is at the forefront of how we always operate our business.  These best practices include additional training, the use of PPE by all our staff, social distancing and deep cleaning and sanitizing of our facilities and buses.

We will be using a product by the name of Mint Disinfectant Plus, an EPA registered product to be used on washable, non-porous surfaces and can be used against SARSCoV-2.  Aries will be sanitizing the interior and exterior of our buses daily by using the Mint Disinfectant Plus to mist our vehicles after every charter, to ensure that each bus has been cleaned and sanitized prior to your charter service. Areas of cleaning and sanitizing include:

  • Handrails for entering and exiting the vehicle
  • Arm rests
  • Driver steering wheel
  • Dash area
  • Interior handrails
  • Head rests
  • Windowsills
  • Restroom door handles
  • Restroom handrails

Drivers temperatures will be taken prior to every shift and anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be sent home. If a passenger or driver starts showing symptoms of the flu or coronavirus while on a multi-day charter, the driver will notify dispatch immediately

To our Valued Customers, Aries Charter Transportation Recommends the Following:

  • Encourage social distancing on seating arrangements when possible and wear face masks when near others
    • Aries Charter encourages everyone to wear a mask throughout the entire duration of the trip
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Monitor your temperature to ensure the safety of the other passengers and driver on board
  • Stay home if you are feeling any symptoms (fever, chills, etc.)
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, as recommended by the CDC
    • If unable to wash hand with soap and water, utilize hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
  • Use gloves if possible, to help limit your contact with frequently touches areas on the vehicle
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue and dispose of safely
