Metro Transit-St. Louis expands cleaning protocols


Metro Transit-St. Louis plans to add antimicrobial technology to its current safety measures on MetroLink trains.

The technology will significantly reduce the spread of harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs, Metro Transit-St. Louis officials said in a press release.

The agency spent eight months researching and testing new sanitizing products that offer a microbe shield as added protection against COVID-19. 

On March 15, the agency will begin employing that new antimicrobial technology. Twenty minutes after it is applied through a fogging device, a protective barrier forms on treated surfaces that lasts up to 30 days, inhibiting the growth of microbes.

Metro Transit-St. Louis plans to continue its nightly cleaning protocols on MetroLink trains, MetroBus vehicles and Metro Call-A-Ride vans. The routine cleanings will not affect the microbe shield barrier or the 30-day effectiveness of the new sanitizing products, agency officials said.
