Flagstaff, Arizona, United States, March 30, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ -- Mountain Line has partnered with Lumin-Air to install high-efficiency MERV-13 equivalent filtration and UVC on its entire fleet of Gillig and New Flyer fixed route buses and paratransit vehicles.
“The pandemic revealed opportunities for public transit agencies to better manage air quality and flow on vehicles,” said Mountain Line CEO and General Manager Heather Dalmolin. “This system allows us to improve the air quality on our fleet for our riders and operators without adding chemicals to the air.”
Lumin-Air's system removes harmful particulates from the air that is recirculated throughout the bus. UVC, which is safely located within the HVAC system, kills contaminants and helps keep the bus's HVAC system clean and efficient.

Dan Fillenwarth, Lumin-Air President added, “We’re excited to work with Mountain Line to provide cleaner air for their riders and operators. Buses are densely packed spaces. Upgrading filtration in buses to the standards we expect in buildings is critical when you consider the impact public transportation has on our communities".
