Wearing of Facemasks at Airports and on Aircraft

 

Customers / Clients traveling with My Getaway Driver should ensure that they have ample supplies of Face Masks to comply with the following current legislative laws

 

Wearing of Face masks at Perth Airport Terminals and on Aircraft

 

To continue keeping WA safe, wearing a face mask is now mandatory in Western Australia while:

  • at an airport
  • travelling on aircraft
  • transporting a person subject to a quarantine direction (e.g. in a personal vehicle, private car, hired car, ride-share vehicle or taxi) ** Webliink to Gov WA Notice **

Airports and air travel can present an increased risk of COVID-19 transmission, and wearing face masks is effective in helping to prevent this.

Where a person, subject to a quarantine direction, needs to engage in transport services, all people in the vehicle (including the driver) are required to wear a face mask.

This includes private, hired, taxi and rideshare vehicles that may be used to travel from:

  • the airport to their suitable premises for self-quarantine, or
  • their place of self-quarantine to a COVID Clinic to present for their Day 11 COVID-19 test.

Children aged 12 years and under do not need to wear a face mask.

Penalties up to $50,000 and $250,000 bodies corporate may apply for people who fail to comply with this requirement. ** Link to EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACT 2005 ( WA ) Section 72A AIRPORT AND TRANSPORTATION ( FACE MASK ) DIRECTIONS **

Perths Smart Freeways

PERTH’S SMART FREEWAYS

On a 13Km stretch of Kwinana Freeway, between Farrington Road and the Narrows Bridge, WA’s first Smart Freeway is taking shape.

The upgrade will require drivers to embrace a whole new way of using a freeway in WA, from traffic lights at the on-ramps to variable speed limits, enabled by new technologies which should see a significant change for the better in the travel along that section of freeway.

Smart Freeway Traffic Signals on on ramps

The most immediate change will be to lanes between Canning Highway and the Narrows, which previously had three lanes as well as an emergency lane along the river.

It will now be converted to four traffic lanes with what is known as “all lane running”, turning the emergency lane into a permanent live traffic lane.

The introduction of all lane running allows Main Roads to provide increased traffic capacity using an existing lane, but it presents a challenge in the risk of crashes and breakdowns.

My Getaway Driver – Transport Services has learnt that there are plans for around six emergency stopping bays, one approximately every 600m, allowing drivers to pull over safely. Each will be equipped with roadside assistance phones and monitored to ensure vehicles aren’t stranded.

Our Pledge to pick you up or Three Free Trips to you

Looking for Transport to and from the Airport ? Great rates, comfortable vehicle available 24 / 7 

Monitoring the Road ahead

If a vehicle does breakdown in a live lane, or if traffic is backing up, another part of the Smart Freeway system kicks into gear.

Monitoring cameras, over 440 sensors and even radar and thermal imaging will detect problems, stopped cars and crashes, and alert the Road Network Operations Centre.

The Operations Centre can then use overhead signs to close lanes by marking them with an X similar to the Graham Farmer Freeway Tunnel, or be able to vary speed limits to improve traffic flow and safety and provide real-time traffic information to road users with electronic message signs.

Perth Smart Freeway Variable Speed control

How bad are Pert’s freeways ?

As population grows in Perth and surrounding suburbs, so does the congestion. As such the time it takes to perform essential tasks also increases. It becomes harder to reach schools or workplaces, and delays in reaching hospitals or emergency services can cost lives.

Congestion across Perth’s road network is estimated to cost $4.5 million a day, and without substantial changes, that figure is expected to double to more than double to $10.5 million a day by 2031.

Perth Smart Freeway Map

Effectively managing congestion is a complex balancing act. What is clear is that a range of strategies, beyond changes to the road network, will be needed to ensure we can keep Perth’s road network moving as our city grows.

Nyepi Day, falls on 7th March this year, a day of silence, celebrating the start of the Hindu new year, for the Balinese this is a time to reflect on the year past and plan for the year ahead.

Nyepi is a Balinese “Day of Silence” that is commemorated every Isakawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar. It is a Hindu celebration mainly celebrated in Bali, Indonesia. Nyepi, a public holiday in Indonesia, is a day of silence, fasting and meditation for the Balinese. The day following Nyepi is also celebrated as New Year’s Day. On this day, the youth of Bali in the village of Sesetan in South Bali practice the ceremony of Omed-omedan or ‘The Kissing Ritual’ to celebrate the new year. The same day celebrated in India as Ugadi.

 

Nyepi Day Celebrations

Observed from 6 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning, Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection, and as such, anything that might interfere with that purpose is restricted. The main restrictions are no lighting fires (and lights must be kept low); no working; no entertainment or pleasure; no traveling; and, for some, no talking or eating at all. The effect of these prohibitions is that Bali’s usually bustling streets and roads are empty, there is little or no noise from TVs and radios, and few signs of activity are seen even inside homes. The only people to be seen outdoors are the Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed.

 

Nyepi Day Dates

Although Nyepi is primarily a Hindu holiday, non-Hindu residents and tourists are not exempt from the restrictions. Although they are free to do as they wish inside their hotels, no one is allowed onto the beaches or streets, and the only airport in Bali remains closed for the entire day.

Also to note that the day after is the Hindu New Year Day and as such may be troublesome travelling in and out of Bali and should also be avoided on this day.

Our Pledge to pick you up or Three Free Trips to you

The only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles responding to life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth.

Booking Tax Invoices and 24 Hour Confirmation

Booking Confirmation System that we use

At My Getaway Driver we use an automated booking in system so that customers can see our available time slots and self book in them selves.

The picture here, shows our online booking system with Friday 1st sime slots which are available to prebook.

Once a customer requests a time slot, the system automatically books out an hour after the job + another 45 mins so that the next job we have ample time to get to as it could be anywhere in the Perth Metro area.

On Demand Booking Service DoT ODBS

Once we receive the booking we double check that the driver is actually available and a car and then we invoice out to the customer to “check all details” and lock in the appointment.

In this example you will see that it is a 9:30am pick up from the customers home address in Barragup for Thu 28th Feb and going to T2 Perth Domestic

Tax Invoice to confirm details and direction of travel

Confirmation Stage 1

Customer checks through the invoiced Tax Invoice booking and by paying this invoice, confirms that all details are correct. Please note that if it was 9:30pm that we would further clarify that by entering the details as 21:30pm so there is NO confussion.

This also clearly shows that the vehicle to pick them up will arrive at 9:30am at their home address and not the other way round.

Once paid, this booking is then confirmed and nobody else can book that time slot.

Confirmation Stage 2

Approximately midday before the day of your travel we text the given mobile number with a screen shot of the booking so that, customer gets confirmation that driver is allocated and will turn up but most importantly the customer can double check the following details

Date and Time of Appointment for Transport

Direction Of Booking ie pick up and drop off locations

On Demand Booking Service Text Confirmation

On the above appointment you will see that it is booked for 18:45pm, for an Airport Transfer pick up and that we will pick up at T2 ( Terminal 2 ) Perth Airport going to Secret Harbour.

At My Getaway we do this for every booking so that if there is a problem and the wrong details are entered, we have two instances were this error can be picked up on and rectified before the appointment.

The above two processes 1. Tax Invoice being set out and 2. Text notification with screen shot give the customer clarity on booking and the option to rectify it should the details be wrong

If customer does not pick up on both of these and driver turns up at the correct address on the paperwork but customer is at the other then its clearly the customer who has not checked and no refund or credit voucher is due.

If My Getaway Driver does not pick up and we miss your appointment all together and do not arrange an alternative as per our Pledge Policy, then the Three Free Trips on the Policy then applies

What are the rules regarding kids and seatbelts within Rideshare / Omnibus vehicles ?
Let us explain …………………………..
My Getaway Driver operate under the Omnibus rules and regulations and as such, do not have to carry / use child seats within our vehicles when we do Airport Transfers etc
We do however extend to customers that they can use their own childseats within our vehicles and if travelling abroad, these childseats can be kept with us for safe keeping until they return and have the same driver / vehicle and their own childseats waiting for them to use on the return trip.
Under WA law, all drivers and passengers are required to wear a seat belt. Passengers under the age of 16 must be appropriately restrained according to the seatbelt rules of the state.
In WA, on 26th June 2018, the Road Safety Commission is updating the laws regarding child restraints for taxi / Rideshare / omnibus drivers.
Drivers will be responsible for ensuring passengers aged one to seven years old are restrained appropriately in adult seat belts if children seats are not available. Omnibus licence holders will be liable to be penalised if they do not ensure all children under seven are restrained appropriately in their vehicle.
Children under the age of one are able to be held by a caregiver who is over 16 years of age and not in the front seat of the vehicle.
In vehicles with multiple rows of seats, children under the age of seven must sit in the rear of vehicle unless all other seats are filled with other passengers under the age of seven.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to carry seats in my vehicle ?
No. In other cities around the world there are products that do require you to have a child seat but here in Perth these products do not currently exist. If you do have a child seat that you would like to make available to your riders, please store this in the boot of your car so you can still accommodate a full car of adult riders and can access the child seat if/when needed.
What if the Child under 7 refuses to put on the adult seat belt ?
This responsibility falls down to the parents of the child and if the child will not wear the seatbelt or sit still, then due to safety regulations, the trip / booking will have to be terminated.
Under Rideshare / Omnibus regulations, all riders and driver-partners are expected to follow relevant road rules – such as wearing seat belts.
If a rider will not wear a seat belt, remind them that it is a legal requirement and that you cannot drive until their seat belt is securely buckled. If they still refuse to wear a seat belt, the Department Of Transport recommend you cancel the trip. Customers will be liable for the cost of the cancelled trip.
