HVAC CO2 sensors for buses: Maintaining a healthy environment wherever you travel.

10th January 2022

Increased fresh air supply and improved airflow on public transport helps to reduce the transmission of viruses. Stay in complete control of your environment with Thermo King’s new CANAIRE CO2 sensors.

Get your passengers back on the buses with confidence

If the last 18 months have taught us anything it’s that enclosed spaces should be well ventilated and enjoy an increased flow of fresh air. This significantly decreases the risk of airborne transmission of viruses. Public transport is traditionally such an environment.

During the pandemic, public transport usage has plummeted. In London for example, buses in were running with just over half the number of travelers than the year before. Commuters are looking for alternative ways to travel, to avoid those less well-ventilated spaces.

So how do we get passengers back on the buses with confidence? Thermo King’s HVAC sensors allow you to precisely control the amount of fresh air entering the vehicle, based on passenger numbers and external conditions. This also helps you to balance comfort and energy consumption.

Give passengers confidence

Aside from comfort, fresh air ventilation is necessary to keep travelers safe at all times. Health organizations recommend increasing the supply of fresh air in closed spaces in order to:

  1. Reduce the risk of infection by improving air quality.
  2. Prevent dryness in the mucous membranes in the nose and mouth, to stop the spread of viruses.
  3. Decrease potential for airborne transmission of viruses.

Increase passenger comfort

Passenger comfort is top of the agenda for leading OEMs  

Manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz, Van Hool and MAN acknowledge that passenger comfort is integral to passenger experience. Features such as glass roof hatches, to give more natural light as well as increased leg-room and easy-to-install driver dividers are all now commonplace.

With Thermo King’s new HVAC CO2 sensors, fleet operators can contribute to this trend and reach their own goals of passenger satisfaction by optimizing the rate of fresh air ventilation and increasing the airflow throughout the vehicle.
