As more places reopen to visitors and business travel ramps up since COVID-19 hit, there’s a particular mode of transportation getting high marks.
In a new survey, people picked rental cars as the safest way to get around (if you can’t use your own vehicle of course). 59% said they felt safest renting a car compared to 29% who picked air travel.
13% thought Uber and Lyft were safest, followed by taxis with 8% and public transportation at 6%. Travelers reported appreciation for specific sanitation to “high touch” points in rental cars, including keys, steering wheel, gear shift, and cupholders.
