400 ComfortDelGro taxis to install locally manufactured plastic shields to minimise contact

About 400 ComfortDelGro taxis will have a plastic shield installed to ensure social distancing between passengers and drivers as part of a trial.

The trial will see the taxis fitted with a plastic cover called V-shield which aims to minimise contact between cabbies and their passengers.

About 50 taxis will be installed every week from now, according to the news release.

V-shields are locally-manufactured and trademarked by Moove Media, a subsidiary of ComfortDelGro Corporation.

Measuring 1m x 0.7m x 0.6m, the V-shield covers the driver’s cabin entirely and is made of "unbreakable" plastic material to protect the drivers from any violent physical harm, the news release added.

It also comes with two openings to facilitate payments on board.

The shield encases only the driver’s cabin area and does not obstruct airflow in the rest of the taxi.

If the trial proves to be successful, more taxis will have V-shield installed.

Previously A PHV driver did the same

Better than nothing right now. Protect as best as they can. Good on CDG for providing their drivers with this.

Driver will be happier. Save petrol. Think the plastic might help a bit. Most drivers are old and unhealthy. They need every protection.

I think is a good initiative. Give more assurance to the commuters plus protecting the drivers also.

Taxi driver better wear a jacket when driving. the aircon now sure very cold one
