New York City’s Subways Have A New Smell: Bleach

Gothamist reports:

Train cars and buses are being cleaned daily, and the entire fleet is getting a deep clean every 72 hours.

Meanwhile, surfaces in stations will also be getting wipe downs—turnstiles, MetroCard and ticket vending machines, slam gates, benches, elevator buttons, and handrails will be disinfected daily.

Governor Andrew Cuomo specified that the weapon of choice here is bleach — “If it smells like bleach when you get on – it’s not bad cologne or perfume, it’s bleach.”
