As Massachusetts continues its reopening phases, it’s anticipated that more people will be riding the T and using it to travel, either to work or restaurants that are open.
In an effort to prepare for an influx of riders, the MBTA will continue to disinfect high-traffic areas, along with using electrostatic decontamination on buses. The rail trains will also be sanitized at least once a day, sometimes twice.
According to the press release, the T will “continue disinfecting high-traffic and high-touch areas, as well as using electrostatic decontamination on buses every two weeks, and in any vehicle operated by an employee who tested positive for COVID-19.”
