The Power of UV Disinfection in
Public Transportation

Trains | Subways | Buses | Stations | Occupational Facilities


Urban, suburban, interstate and national public transportation is vital to the well-being of the economy, and an irreplaceable part of the lives of all passengers. Yet, today in the age of COVID-19, transit is struggling to provide basic services while they strive to deliver safety, confidence of an infection-free environment, and peace of mind to each rider.

Immediate Need

Understanding that transportation providers have unique needs, discover a proven way to kill both airborne and surface viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens quickly, programmatically, affordably, and with intensity and effectiveness.


PURO Lighting has direct experience in creating high-level disinfection programs for a number of transportation authorities including buses, subways, trains, and stations.

Helo Fixtures: UV Disinfection From Above. Perfect for all passenger terminals and stations, as well as staff work spaces.

Sentry Mobile Units: Portable UV Disinfection. Provide portable disinfection on demand in trains, buses, stations and more.

Both the Helo and Sentry units, powered by Violet Defense® technology, are innovative, broad spectrum UV disinfection products created for either installation in ceilings or on walls, or on wheels or a tripod for area to area flexibility. Both units can provide whole room protection no matter the size of the space, and can be programmed to disinfect on demand in one cycle.
