Breathe Clean Air



Mass Transit Clean Air

Improve the air quality on your metro buses with Electrostatic
MERV-13 equivalent filtration and optional UV-C


High Efficiency -> MERV-13+ Equivalent
High Air Flow -> Low Pressure Drop

Long Life -> 3x the Life of Standard Filters
Economical -> Low Cost Replacement Filter media


Supplement with UV-C

UV-C can be used in conjunction with improved filtration to deliver a higher Clean Air Delivery Rate while helping to inactivate particles captured in the filter.

Electrostatic MERV-13
Equivalent Filtration

Electrostatic MERV-13 equivalent filtration helps capture contaminants from recirculated air without reductions in airflow.


UV-C can be added to help inactivate contaminants captured in the filter and traveling through the moving airstream.


Reduces operating costs related to preventive maintenance by extending the time between filter changes.


Our solution is completely enclosed ensuring no light shines on occupants. No ions, chemicals or gases are released into the air that people breathe.

Why is improved filtration necessary for Mass Transit?

  • Electrostatic MERV-13 filters are recommended for schools, offices, and other congregate spaces however filtration used in mass transit applications are usually low MERV, designed to protect equipment not people.
  • There is typically little to no outdoor air ventilation on mass transit vehicles. Any outdoor air that is brought into the vehicle is from the roadway containing allergens, vehicle exhaust, and even wildfire smoke depending on the location.
  • High efficiency -> MERV-13+ Equivalent
  • High Air Flow -> Low Pressure Drop
  • Long Life -> 3x the Life of Standard Filters
  • Economical -> Low Cost Replacement Filter Media

High Air Flow* -> Low Pressure Drop
Long Life -> 3x the Life of Standard Filters

Our filters have the unique characteristics of being highly efficient AND low in pressure drop, meaning your system flows a high amount of air, even when the filters are in place three-times as long as standard, low quality bus filters. Our filter fibers have a small but permanent electrical charge enabling them to capture very small particles that are capable of travel furthest into people’s lungs, causing the most health problems.

* Airflow measured by independent air balance contractors have repeatedly shown excellent airflow after installation of Lumin-Air’s filters, even at 3x standard bus filter life. Airflow reports can be provided upon request by completing our contact form below.

High Efficiency -> Electrostatic MERV-13+ Equivalent

  • MERV-13 filters remove 77% of the airborne droplet nuclei people exhale that transmit respiratory diseases like the flu, the common cold, RSV and Covid.
  • MERV-13 filters are recommended for areas with wildfire problems. Watch the video of our filters removing small particles (smoke) from the air.
