How our trains are cleaned
Our trains are cleaned once every 24 hours, usually at night. This includes a thorough cleaning of toilets, seats, keypads, handrails, handles, walls and floors.
Daytime, a more basic cleaning is done at each end station. It involves removing garbage, cleaning the floors in the bistro and a thorough cleaning of the toilets. As an additional measure, we also wipe off exposed surfaces such as handrails, handles and keypads.
The detergents we use for cleaning are fat solvents and have an effect on viruses such as covid-19.
In addition to this, a more extensive cleaning is done at different intervals, using steam cleaning machines and carpet washing machines.
When it comes to hygiene, we urge both our travellers and our staff to be careful about washing their hands and using hand sanitiser. We offer disinfecting hand wipes in our bistro and kiosk carriages.
