Resources – IAQ in Public Transport Facilities

IAQ in Public Transport Facilities

In 2003, EPD issued two sets of practice notes for managing IAQ in air-conditioned bus facilities and air-conditioned railway facilities respectively, and in October 2015 issued another set for air-conditioned ferries. The Practice Notes set out the responsibilities of the transport operator, relevant considerations for facility design, operational practice, maintenance and air monitoring requirements, in order to maintain a good IAQ in the relevant transport facilities. It also specified the benchmark levels for carbon dioxide concentration for the management of the transport facilities to ensure good IAQ in their facilities. The Practice Notes can be found at these link:
