LOS ANGELES -More than 2,000 mask dispensers are being installed on trains, buses, Metro Micro vehicles and at Metro Rail stations. Five hundred dispensers were installed last week with another 500 expected this week, according to a press release.
The dispensers are manufactured by BYD and they will be replenished daily. While the masks are available for anyone who needs one, Metro asks that riders only take one at a time.
"The installation of dispensers is a top priority and our Operations team is working hard to install them as soon as they are received," Metro said in a release sent out on Monday. Metro has also stepped up cleaning of buses and trains and is working to ensure adequate ventilation on its vehicles.
