The MTA is bringing more bathrooms to subway stations across the city after they were closed off during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The bathrooms have been reopening on a rolling basis, and there are 128 subway station bathrooms that are now available for commuters who have to go on the go.
According to the MTA's website, seven stations in the Bronx and 21 stations in Brooklyn have bathrooms open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. They say that many of these bathrooms have received upgrades, including new faucets and hand dryers.
