MTA installed hand sanitizer dispensers at several subway stations across the Big Apple on Monday as the city was nearing reopening dates – but they are still as reliable as trains.
At the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station under platforms eight and eight, three yellow, foot-pump-powered dispensers were found tied to columns and stairs, Monday morning,
But only one person was providing a large-scale solution to help the carnivirus spread.
“It simply came to our notice then. The third one shot the thing over my shell! “Jamal Nelson, 23, who has tried the new machine.
Alyssa Garcia, 41, a home health care attendant and a resident of Queens, had a similar experience.
“Foot pumps are good and free are good but they are so good in the empty,” he said.
MTA Tweeted an announcement It will test different types of dispensers.
“Starting today, you may notice hand sanitizer dispensers at some stations – we’re experimenting with different types of tests so we can work out solutions that we can manage,” the tweet read.
“We make sure they are strong enough, hold enough hand sanitizer and are working properly. Keep an eye out. ”
MTA did not immediately respond to a request for comment on how many dependents have been installed across the city and why some are still not working.
