You put one of these on, you won't get slimed again.
- Patty Tolan; Ghostbusters (2016 Movie)

The Uniforms were provided by Patty Tolan in the 2016 movie. Originally used for subway work, they protect the wearer from slime.[1]


After the Conductors of the Metaphysical Examination confronted the Electrocuted Ghost in the tunnels of the Seward Street Subway Station, they all ended up being slimed. Patty took it upon herself to deal with the issue by getting MTA uniforms. While waiting for the the car so they could go to the Stonebrook Theatre, Patty introduced Abby Yates and Erin Gilbert to them, and the team donned the uniforms on the drive there.

After the Ghostbusters moved to the Firehouse, the uniforms were hung on the front of the Ghostbusters' respective footlocker doors in the middle of the ground floor.

Parts of Uniform

This section notes the parts/designs of the uniform and differences.

This Uniform is very similar to the one worn in the original film, but with high-vis lines, as they were adapted from subway suits.
