What a Transit Cleaner does

Transit Cleaners sweep and wash subways and elevated stations, including steps, platforms, mezzanines, toilets, and related rooms and enclosures. They measure and mix cleaning chemicals, clean biological waste and sanitize effected areas. Transit Cleaners operate cleaning equipment, such as pressure washers, vacuums and sweepers, and perform light maintenance work on this equipment.
