Areas regularly cleaned include are doors, door knobs, windows, benches, partitions, trash cans, elevators, escalators, handrails, ledges, all restrooms and floor surfaces and all floor mats. Customers wishing to limit their use of touchpoints are encouraged to purchase tickets through the NJ TRANSIT mobile app.
