Coronavirus NYC Update: MTA shows disinfectant sprayers it uses to fight coronaviruses


NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – The MTA has shown how it fights coronavirus. The public transit agency uses more than a dozen types of spray equipment to disinfect subways and buses.One of the main features of the new sprayers is that they are portable, so cleaners can move easily and quickly from one train to another, which limits the impact on service.

This is part of the MTA’s 24-hour scalable cleaning program to protect commuters from the virus.

Traffic has continued to increase since regular weekday service was re-established as part of the reopening of New York.

The MTA announced that on Friday June 19, the number of combined weekdays on New York City subways and buses exceeded two million for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March.

Night metro closures from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. remain in effect.
