Automated Public Toilets

 

The new El Monte Station opened for revenue service in October 2012, and services as an iconic, efficient, and sustainable transit station for over 30,000 daily riders. As part of the original station construction, an automated public toilet (APT) consisting of two unisex stalls was installed in the lower concourse area for usage by our customers. It has come to our attention through feedback from constituents that although the APT is performing well and has been well-maintained, the frequency of usage has lead to long lines, reportedly as long as 10 minutes, during the peak morning and evening rush hours.
