Bathrooms will reopen at eight subway stations in January, the MTA said on Monday. 

The announcement, which was first reported by Streetsblog, noted that the reopening of bathrooms comes nearly three years after they were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.​

According to the MTA, the reopening of the subway bathrooms, will include the stations at 161st Street-Yankee Stadium (B/D/4), 14th Street-Union Square (L/N/Q/R/W/4/5/6), Jay Street-MetroTech (A/C/F), Flushing-Main Street (7), and Fulton Street (A/C/J/R/Z/2/3/4/5). The other stations have not yet been determined, according to Streetsblog

The MTA says they've hired 800 cleaners over the past two months, which will allow for additional subway bathrooms to reopen. 

According to the MTA, restrooms in the Long Island Rail Road sections of Penn Station, Atlantic Terminal and Jamaica were reopened, as were bathrooms in Grand Central Terminal.

A total of 133 public restrooms across nearly 70 stations were shut down by the MTA in March 2020, Streetsblog reported.
