Commuters at a dozen Metro-North stations can now purchase their own personal protective equipment from vending machines.
Items like hand sanitizer, face masks and more are all being sold at the stations for under $10.
Since the pandemic began, the railroad has been disinfecting and cleaning trains once a day and stations twice a week.
Officials are encouraging commuters to take precaution and try to social distance when possible.
The stations that currently have vending machines include Croton-Harmon, Dobbs Ferry, Fordham, Hastings-on-Hudson, Harlem-125th Street, North White Plains, Port Chester, Poughkeepsie, Rye, Southeast, Tarrytown and Yonkers.
Metro-North has also installed touchless hand sanitizer dispensers, as well as masks that are stored on trains for those who board without them.
