Pacific Western Transportation’s Response to COVID-19

The purpose of this announcement is to provide you with information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and how the Pacific Western Group of Companies are responding.

The health and safety of our passengers, customers, and employees remains our top priority.

We have initiated several proactive measures to ensure we navigate the evolving COVID-19 situation, while continuing to support our employees and serve our passengers and customers.

For the last few weeks, we have been closely monitoring and preparing for all the possible scenarios and ensuring we have the right plans and resources in place. 

As a part of our daily routine cleaning, all vehicles and offices are cleaned at regular intervals.  Recently, we have enhanced our sanitation efforts by increasing the frequency, method, and materials used to complete this work.

PWT is proactively executing several internal initiatives to ensure we are prepared for the possibility of widespread illness. These initiatives include, but are not limited to:

  • Execution of a robust communications plan
  • Travel and health related protocols
  • Operational contingency planning and testing

Today and always, we remain committed to doing what’s best for our employees, passengers, and customers. We are working together as a group of companies to take care of one another and continue to make decisions through the lens of our Core Values and Strategic Goals.

PWT remains committed to our Safely Home promise and hope that the actions we are taking give you confidence in our dedication to the health and safety of our passengers, customers, and employees.
