MARTA using technology to make vehicle and facility cleaning easier and faster

Electrostatic sprayers can improve the cleaning process as the agency prepares for an increase in service and ridership.

Delta Airlines has provided the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) with 50 electrostatic sprayers to help with easier and more effective cleaning of MARTA buses, trains and rails stations as the agency prepares for an increase in service frequency and ridership.

The electrostatic sprayers disperse disinfectant in a fine mist that clings to and sanitizes surfaces without leaving a residue. The 30 handheld and 20 backpack sprayers are being used by trained MARTA maintenance crews to disinfect vehicles and facilities in a fraction of the time needed for a typical wipe down cleaning.
