Camira StaySafe to feature on new bus fleet in Łódź

Back to News & Events
Becoming the first city in the world to equip its buses with Camira StaySafe - an advanced textile treatment which reduces the potential for viral transmission from fabric surfaces in commercial spaces and bus & coach interiors - Łódź, a city located in central Poland, will feature the technology across its brand new fleet of 17 electric Volvo buses.

Beginning to operate in Łódź in the first quarter of 2022, the project ensures that the city's vehicles will be provided with an additional safeguard measure which can help prevent the person to person spread of both viruses and bacteria.

"Camira StaySafe works to destroy bacteria and viruses, making any threat to passengers even smaller."

Explaining the reasons behind their decision to feature Camira StaySafe across the fleet of buses, Krzysztof Kamiński, Vice President of MPK - Łódź, comments, "We are constantly looking for solutions which, during a pandemic, will make traveling by public transport even safer. After discussions with Camira, we decided to use a wool moquette fabric coated with Camira StaySafe - a treatment which works to destroy bacteria and viruses, so that any potential risk to passengers will be even smaller."

"Camira StaySafe is a completely new, breakthrough product in our portfolio."

Oskar Górski, Camira's European Area Business Manager, comments on the project, and the benefits Camira StaySafe will bring to public transport in Łódź, "MPK-Łódź is the first public transport company in the world to use this brand new textile treatment. The post-Covid landscape brings with it many challenges - one of them being to reinvite passengers to use public transport - and Camira StaySafe is a completely new, breakthrough product in facilitating this. An advanced technology shown to have highly effective anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, it is safe, durable, and passengers entering buses will not notice any difference - the fabric will look the same as before, except that it will be covered with a special treatment to reduce the potential for transmission."
