PPE Vending Machines Are Coming To Subway Stations

For those traveling to and from Lower Manhattan, the MTA announced a pilot program for PPE vending machines — stocked with reusable face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and wipes for purchase — in 10 subway stations across the city.

Commuters can keep eyes peeled for these vending machines at the following stops:

—14 St-Union Square

—34 St-Herald Square (two machines)

—34 St-Penn Station – 1, 2, 3 lines

—34 St-Penn Station – A, C, E lines

—42 St-Port Authority Bus Terminal – A, C, E lines

—42 St-Times Square (two machines)

—59 St-Columbus Circle

—74 St-Roosevelt Av

—Atlantic Av-Barclays Center

—Lexington Av – E and M lines

We’ll keep you posted when dispensaries like these pop into Downtown station locations. Until then, you can score free single-use masks and hand sanitizer from any MTA station booth (and yes, you should still wear a mask anytime you step outside).
