New system will better sanitize buses on UAB campus

4The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Blazer Express bus system will be the pilot location for new electrostatic sprayers to better disinfect vehicles.  

Groome Transportation, the system’s vendor, will provide the materials and training for the new technology, a process that exceeds CDC guidance for sanitization and is similar to the technology UAB Facilities is using for public spaces across campus.

“There are many surfaces on our buses and vans, and we have been proactive in keeping them sanitized often,” said André Davis, director of UAB Transportation. “This new system will make quick work of this process and help us support UAB’s mission to be the safest campus in the nation.”
