This webinar was held on Thursday, April 30, 2020.


Join this webinar to learn how New York City Transit has developed effective methods to clean, disinfect, and put microbial shields on their trains and buses in a practical, hands-on presentation. As agencies and cities think about re-opening, it will be crucial to help the riding public understand public transit is a safe place. NYCT will share techniques that will be helpful now, for agencies trying to figure out what to do with reduced staff, and will also be helpful if there is a second wave of infection. Our speaker will answer questions about what NYCT has tried, and what has worked best.
