Compromised Immune System Transportation

Your security, safety and health is our #1 priority

Whether you have a compromised immune system or you are concerned about one of the many viruses and germs that surround us on the daily basis you should be comforted by the fact that before and after every client enters or exits our vehicles, we spray and wipe down the interior portion of the car with disinfectants that kill norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus and over 60 other viruses, germs and fungi.  The disinfectants that we use kill the same viruses that the CDC recommends to be used in rooms with patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection.  Clients who are seeking a compromised immune system transport, (CIST), must specify this in advance of all bookings, due to the fact, many of our other clients do not require this type of service.

Visit the CDC website:

So whether you’re concerned about Ebola or you have a compromised immune system, you can rest assured that the vehicle you are entering has been disinfected before and after every client.  Our service is geared toward discerning business travelers who are concerned about their security, safety and health and are conscious of the many germs, viruses and fungi, that surround us on the daily basis.
