“MARTA will continue to thoroughly clean its facilities, rail stations, buses and trains, with a focus on high touch areas such as handrails, elevator buttons, escalators, and Breeze machines,” the agency said. “Antibacterial and antiviral cleaners are used in the clean-up of bodily fluids.”
MARTA said it has shared tips for preventing the spread of the coronavirus with employees and placed them at all of its facilities.
The agency also asked customers to notify a MARTA employee if they see something that needs attention on any MARTA facility. Customers can also use the agency’s “See and Say” app to report a concern to its Emergency Preparedness Unit.
“Local health authorities have emphasized that widespread transmission of the virus is not occurring, but are planning response measures for the scenario of more cases,” the agency said. “MARTA is working with health and transportation officials to plan for an increased response should one become necessary.”
