A Tried-and-True Solution Makes its Debut in the Public Transit Industry

Although advanced air purification systems have been used in various settings such as hospitals and airplanes, utilizing this technology in the public transit space is on the rise due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

State-of-the-art air purification systems and air filters are not new technology; they’ve been used to scrub germs, microbes, viruses and bacteria from the air and surfaces in airplanes, government buildings and hospital settings. But the application of this technology on transit vehicles is just now starting to be explored as transit agencies search for new solutions to maintain a safe environment for passengers and operators as the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now that agencies are testing and installing these systems, companies are expanding their product offerings to provide cleaner air for the community.
