DPS transportation adds disinfecting lights to buses
VioSafe Lights Provide Continuous Disinfection for Increased Health and Safety
Denver Public Schools (DPS) is installing VioSafe lights, proven to kill germs, on many of its buses. The lights provide continuous disinfection of high-tough surfaces, increasing protection against COVID-19 and other viruses and bacteria.
VioSafe lights shine across a 12-foot radius, killing germs in its path. The lights help to dramatically reduce contamination while providing white light illumination thatís safe for humans and animals.
Ten buses have been outfitted with this new technology. The district plans to install the lights on its entire fleet by the end of January 2021
