London's taxi and private hire drivers are to receive an additional 1.5 million face masks and 30,000 bottles of hand sanitiser, Transport for London (TfL) has announced.
The equipment will be distributed at car parks across the capital from Monday as part of an effort to help drivers and passengers avoid being infected by coronavirus.
Short education videos have been created to provide guidance on how to clean a vehicle after each drop-off.
Drivers will also receive a sticker to display on a car window to demonstrate they are "Covid prepared".
Helen Chapman, TfL's director of licensing, regulation and charging, said they were "providing this additional support to help boost the industry in the coming weeks, reassuring customers that vehicles are as safe and clean as they possibly can be".
Steve McNamara, general secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association, said it was "a positive initiative, which should help to demonstrate to the public that taxi drivers are taking every possible precaution to keep their passengers safe, whilst continuing to provide the world class service London's black cabs are known for".
