Security & Hygiene Concept

We want our passengers to feel safe on board of our buses - especially in times of corona

The health and safety of our passengers and staff is our top priority. We have implemented extensive protection and hygiene measures so that customers can continue to use our service with confidence.

How we protect you

We have put several security and hygiene measures into effect to protect you and your fellow passengers. 

Ventilation of passenger compartments

The passenger compartments in our buses are continuously supplied with fresh air via vents. Air is extracted via the luggage compartment while the bus is moving. A complete air exchange is performed within every one to three minutes. 

Separate boarding zones

We ensure that there is sufficient distance between the passengers. Therefore, we have defined boarding zones providing the necessary space. The entry/exit takes place via separate doors, front and rear.

Hand sanitizer available on all buses

All our buses are provided with hand sanitizer or contactless hand sanitizer dispensers.

Deep-clean of passenger compartments

We have intensified the cleaning of passenger compartments by taking additional measures, such as cleaning grab handles and other surfaces even more thoroughly.

How you can support us

By following those measures and guidelines, you will help to minimise the risk of infection and make your journey with Autobus Oberbayern as safe as possible.

Obligation to wear a face covering

We are only allowed to transport passengers if they are wearing a face covering. Please also wear your face mask when entering / exiting the bus.

Passenger documentation

To be able to ascertain and inform passengers in case of a subsequently identified Covid-19 infection, we kindly ask you to prepare a list including names and contact details of all passengers (phone number or address). 

Corona Warn-App

The "Corona-Warn-App" helps to determine whether we have had any contact with an infected person which could result in a risk of catching the virus. This way, we can interrupt chains of infection more quickly. The app is a service by the Federal Government. Autobus Oberbayern recommends using the app. It is available as a free download in the App Store and from Google Play

Rules of hygiene

We ask all passengers to follow the rules of conduct and hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze, regularly and thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water and avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose with your hands.


Passengers are not allowed to use our buses if they have been in contact with anyone testing positive for Covid-19 nor tested positive themselves within the last 14 days. For your safety and your fellow passengers, please check that you are not experiencing any common Covid-19 symptoms including fever, cough, and loss of taste.
