MTA Announces 18 Public Bathrooms Will Reopen on Monday, Jan. 9

Male and Female Bathrooms at Nine Stations Will Reopen at 7:00 a.m. Monday


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) today announced that 18 bathrooms at nine subway stations will reopen to the public on Monday, Jan. 9. The bathrooms, one male and one female at nine stations, will be open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. with a one-hour closure for cleaning from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Bathrooms in the transit system had been previously closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The pandemic created many challenges to providing faster, cleaner, safer service in the transit system,” said New York City Transit President Richard Davey. “But as ridership continues to rebound, we’re pleased to provide relief to customers by reopening some bathrooms across the transit system. When customers have got to go on the go, we’ve now got them covered at select stations.”
The MTA took advantage of the closures of bathrooms to perform needed maintenance to these facilities including:
  • New motion activated faucets
  • New fixtures (hand dryers, dispensers)
  • New/painted privacy panels
  • New lighting
  • Tile grouting
  • New door signs reflecting hours of operation
  • Ceiling Painting
