New ‘viricidal’ sanitiser in use across First bus fleet

First Bus is using a new ‘viricidal’ sanitiser, Zoono Z71, across its entire fleet, which it claims kills Coronavirus on surfaces and is effective for 28 days. It is environmentally-friendly, uses no alcohol or dangerous chemicals, and is proven to be highly effective against Covid-19, according to First.

Buses and depots will now be treated every 28 days with this Zoono Z71 which attracts and kills organisms. 

Giles Fearnley, managing director, First Bus, says, “We are determined to do all we can to protect our customers and colleagues at this time. Our buses are essential for those who need to travel and we want everyone to understand that it is safe to use our buses.”

The sanitser bonds to surfaces and delivers persistent protection, even after regular washing or cleaning. A protective layer attracts and kills organisms mechanically, removing the risk of cross contamination, resistance or mutation.
