Commuters got a whiff of bleach as they entered the 79th Street 1 train station on Tuesday morning, part of the state’s plan to sanitize the subways and slow the spread of coronavirus.
“The smell was slight but there and sort of reassuring,” a Twitter user named @FashionistaNY
“If it smells like bleach when you get on a bus or when a child goes to school, it is not bad cologne,” Governor Cuomo said on Monday. “It is bleach.”
An MTA spokesperson said the agency is “disinfecting stations, trains, buses and Access-A-Ride vehicles daily across the bus, subway, Metro-North and LIRR with our full fleet being fully sanitized every 72 hours.”
