AROUND THE INDUSTRY

LYNX Introduces Vehicle Decontamination Machine

The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) in Orlando recently used the first of its federal American Relief and Recovery Act (ARRA) funds to purchase an innovative micro-particle disinfectant machine from Zimek of Sarasota, FL. The $124,000 expenditure includes the cost of three machines, materials, equipment, warranty, and training.

This technology will allow LYNX to enhance its safety commitment by using the equipment on all its buses to kill dangerous bacteria, viruses, and toxic mold, which could cause severe health problems to passengers. One cleaning will last at least 30 days.

The agency will also use this technology to treat various offices, work space, bathrooms, and the passenger terminal.

LYNX will be the first public transportation agency in the U.S. to use the “Dri-Mist” treatment, patented by Zimek for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
