The Edmonton Transit Service has partnered with Outbreaker Solutions to install antimicrobial CSC touch-plates at up to 10 transit facilities around the city. This project will be completed with no cost to the public.
The push-plates look like a ceramic tile and are being installed on swing doors at select transit centres and LRT stations. The first installation of the six-month pilot project was at the Bay/Enterprise Square LRT Station last week.
"We're all about trying to prevent the spread of these pathogens at that common touchpoint, on things everybody comes in contact with," co-founder Matt Hodgson said.
