The New York City MTA chose 2 Bitimec battery powered 626-EZ Bus Washing Systems, which are totally self-enclosed power brushes on wheels.
The Bitimec Speedy Wash model 626-EZ is the most advanced self-contained mobile bus wash machine available on the market today. Double controls allow the machine to work in two directions reducing wash times to 6-8 minutes per bus. Bitimec wash equipment occupy less than 15 square feet of floor space and drastically reduces the unit cost for washing large vehicles.
