Lynk Taxis - Important Message
« on: May 20, 2020, 03:18:43 pm »
Passenger & Driver Protective Screens

Great news!! We've installed screens between the front and back of Lynk Taxis so you and your driver are separated. As Dublin gradually comes out of lockdown we hope these screens, along with PPE for our drivers ensure that you can travel by taxi with confidence.




How to Book a Screened Taxi

1. Download/Open the Lynk app or call 018202020
2. Set 'Address' & 'Destination'
3. Change vehicle to 'Protective Screen'   
4. Confirm your details & book

We recommend that you pay a card. Card journeys are completely contactless, you can just jump in & jump out without any cash handover!.


 
Thank you & stay safe

Personal Protective Equipment.

Makes sense for anyone who's nervous about the virus but has to travel to choose Lynk, I guess and it obviously makes the firm the logical choice for hospital patient transfers.

It does nothing to protect the potential passenger from the previous 100 customers.The news says coronavirus stays on hard surfaces for up to 72 hours.

Fckin great  I suppose we'll all end up having to get  these pointless bits of plastic, at least untill the Gates medicine show rolls into town.
they might stop you getting stabbed or slashed I suppose.
Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
   Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
   And things are not what they seem.

Depends what he means by "we". Maybe he means the bosses and drivers that work for the firm. He does own a substantial amount of the vehicles on his fleet though.

First it was ambassadors now it looks like "No Screen" , "No work" really making it hard especially as there will be very little available out on the streets.

So we get a screen and next thing you know it dont comply with your insurance or the SGS, WTF are we supposed to do ?

As well as that even if the NCT,and suitability DO agree to ir,all it takes is some little prick to scratch his name on it,and it fails the suitability.thats very likely,considering they failed a nimber of years ago because there was a letter missing of my nevet used fukin fire extinguisher

 Freenow:

Partition Screen Booking Option

 ,

The health and safety of drivers and passengers is our top priority. As so many drivers are choosing to have a screen installed in their taxi, we have decided to launch a new booking option that allows passengers to select a taxi with a partition screen. This new booking option will be called Taxi + Screen in the app.

 ‌

Let us know if you have a partition screen in your vehicle and you'll be able to start receiving requests from passengers who choose this booking option.

Why oh why can none of you these cunt dispatchers are being allowed make the running.is there NONE of you with any balls to tell them to fukk off.even the drivers that work with Ebbs and F/N are being FORCED into getting these screens in at MORE expense in an industry that will be on its knees when this is over.if you are a taxi customer and you have the option of chosing a car with a screen,as opposed to a car with NO screen.there is no contest which hasone your going to choose.drivers are now faced with very real choses in the coming weeks.this game is becoming ever more expensive to stay in,so your choices are simple .either be prepared to stay ,and continue to hand out cash every time your lords and masters get another idea,or take back control of YOUR industry,and tell dispatchers to fukk off.
