Urine sensors to be installed in elevators in Boston

The Massachusetts Transportation Authority (MBTA) is launching a test program to stop people peeing in elevators. Special urine sensors will be installed there. APNews gave more details.

MBTA is launching a pilot program that will place urine detection sensors in four elevators in downtown Boston. The sensors will alert employees who will have to send a cleaning crew there.

MBTA program manager Megan Collins said the elevator ceiling sensors have an attached fan that allows them to suck in air and “detect that is present in it.”

The program starts in August. Data will be collected for several months before the agency decides to implement the program before the end of the year.

This is not a new concept.

Almost ten years ago, the Atlanta Department of Transportation launched a pilot program that included strobe lights, alarms, and police alerts when urine was found in an elevator. Elevators after that did not work until cleaning. The successful program was eventually expanded.

MBTA hopes the program will help solve the problem, as Collins says public urination is not only unsanitary, it can damage elevators .
