As an industry that intimately and personally serves many clients daily, we must be especially vigilant about measures that can help protect the health and safety of fellow employees and passengers.

  • Avoid using shuttle phones. Transfer the calls to your personal phone instead.
  • Conduct a thorough cleaning of vehicle interior surfaces with Lysol or antibacterial/virus disinfectant wipes after each ride
  • Remove all printed and reading materials from seat-back pockets
  • Cease offering any refreshments (i.e., gum, mints, water, etc.).
  • Limit all physical contact or materials sharing between chauffeurs and clients where possible
  • Clean and disinfect all office, dispatch and working areas daily
  • See a doctor immediately if they feel unwell and report to Management.
  • Wipe down all shared spaces and items after each use.
  • Wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds
  • Use your personal hand sanitizer that has been provided by King Tours.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow, inside your shirt, or into a tissue
  • Don’t share office computers, mouse, or keyboard.
  • Work from home, unless you must work in the office
  • Open windows of the Vehicle between trips, to allow fresh air.
  • Monitor passenger touch points, and use disinfecting wipes (or spray) to clean them after each group transfer
  • Keep “re-circulate” air feature off in the vehicle.
  • Use latex gloves to pick-up trash after each trip. Do not leave tissues, cups, and common debris on the bus since these are most likely to be contaminated.
  • Keep you electronic driver logs up to date
  • King has an ample supply of disinfecting products. If you require more, please contact your supervisor immediately.

Taking these precautions and others will help maintain the healthiest and safest environment possible for clients and our employees.

What happens if a Driver or King employee is directly affected or tested positive for corona virus (COVID-19)?

Safety of our passenger, driver, and employees is our top priority. We require any employee or chauffeur who tests positive to inform King Tours Management immediately. Once informed, we will notify those who were in contact with the affected person for the previous two weeks. We can do so by checking electronic logs, GPS, and interior cameras of vehicles.

We will direct all Drivers who suspect they may be sick to not perform any rides. Any Driver who tests positive for corona virus may not perform King Tours transfers until receiving a doctor’s permission.

Use the form below to submit an anonymous suggestion, recommendation, or complaint to King Management.


King Tours and Limousine Service has a zero tolerance policy for Distracted Driving.

All King Drivers must use a hands-free communication device. This could be a Bluetooth connection to your mobile phone or a headset.

To clarify our Health and Safety Policy in relation to the recent legalization of cannabis in Ontario, King Tours and Limousine Service Inc., emphasizes that every employee/contractor has a legal obligation to report fit for work and able to perform all work in a safe manner.   There is zero tolerance for the use of Cannabis by Drivers or Employees of King Tours and Limousine Service inc.

Carbon Neutral by the End of 2018 

In 2014, the transportation sector was the source of 23% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada. It is second only to the oil and gas sector as the largest source of GHG emissions in Canada. Transportation emissions are widely distributed as they originate from millions of independent sources, for example each vehicle’s tailpipe. GHGs that are produced by the combustion of petroleum fuels consist predominantly of carbon dioxide and smaller amounts of nitrous oxide.

Smith Ness Conservation Project

In 2018 King Tours and Limousine Service has planted trees in the Smith Ness Conservation Area near Niagara Falls Ontario.  Each tree will be planted and dedicated to a specific customer or transportation project.  The goal is to plant and dedicate enough trees to offset the entire carbon footprint our buses create.

See our project in action: https://createyourforest.ca/visit/kingtours/smithness

How Much CO2 Does a Tree Offset?

A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old. That’s about 22 kg / yr or 455 kg /.
