Cyclists will be able to purchase a number of items, including single and multi-use masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and wipes.
Cash and cashless payment options will be available.
“As the global pandemic continues, we know more than ever that we are all in the same boat,” TTC CEO Rick Leary said in a written statement.
“Safety is a core value at TTC and we want to make sure our customers feel safe on all of our vehicles and at our stations. We are always on the lookout for new ways to improve safety and give our customers choices. These vending machines are just another way to go. ”
The TTC also continues to distribute free masks and disinfectant in certain trams and in several metro stations.
