Port Authority of Allegheny County installs purifiers to sanitise vehicles

The Port Authority of Allegheny County is installing air and surface purification devices in its fleet of 700 buses and 80 light rail cars to improve the customer experience by creating an even healthier and safer environment for its passengers and employees.

The installation of NFI Parts® Proactive Air and Surface Purification (PASP) units began autumn 2021, and more than half of the bus fleet is now equipped with them. Installations in rail cars will begin early next year (2022).

“The safety of our riders and employees has always been our top priority, and we remain committed to following every precaution to ensure our vehicles are safe,” said Port Authority CEO, Katharine Kelleman…

The PASP units use technology to create advanced purification by producing High Energy Clusters that are distributed throughout the interior of the vehicle, safely sanitising both air and surfaces.
