Public transportation is known for its convenience and cost-effectiveness in helping people move to and from work as well, as other destinations. However, during the pandemic, it was listed as one of the high-risk areas. Overcrowding, non-sanitized metal handrails, and difficulty in maintaining physical distance have been pointed out as the main culprits in fueling the spread of the disease.
The commuter strap by a company called QUNY is providing a solution. According to the product and non-provisional patent owner, Carlos Martinez, the company aims at providing a clean and safe option for a more enjoyable experience using public transportation. To achieve this, the company has come up with the Commuter Safety Strap. "Our goal is to provide a clean and safe option for a more enjoyable experience using public transportation for commuting to and from work or getting around our great city,” said Martinez.
"Over 4.3 million people ride the subway system every day; over 1 billion people go through the turnstiles per year and even though this number has significantly decreased, it is near impossible for trains/buses to be sanitized properly around the clock".”, said Martinez
"The Commuter (Safety) Strap is a portable and machine washable solution for mass transportation users who want to take their own safety, and securely place it into their own hands,” added Martinez.
While outlining the features of the commuter safety strap, Martinez said that commuters now have an affordable solution to avoid direct contact with non-sanitized handrails, helping them to arrive at their destination clean and safe.
The Commuter (Safety) Strap is available in four colors, namely red burgundy, navy blue, beige, and army green canvas straps.
