Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

VRE railcars are disinfected twice a day, after morning and evening service, with special attention given to frequently touched surfaces.

 

Preparing for the Next Day's Morning Service

Overnight cleanings now use acidic electrolyzed water, a potent yet nonirritating disinfectant that kills viruses, even those more resilient to disinfection, and bacteria. The hypochlorous acid produced by electrolyzing the water can be 100 times more powerful than the hypochlorite ion in bleach, yet it does not irritate the eyes and skin and does not damage fabric and metal. Hypochlorous acid relies on a process called lysis to kill viruses and bacteria. The acid causes the cell’s membrane to rupture, resulting in its death.

Our new enhanced cleaning system is environmentally friendly, using only salt, tap water, and electricity. By generating our cleaning solution on site and on demand, we eliminate the environmental impact from the distribution and disposal of hazardous conventional chemicals, while creating a healthy indoor environment.

Track Safety: Learn the facts. Exercise judgement. Teach others.  

It is not only dangerous to walk on train tracks, it is also ILLEGAL. Trains are quieter than ever, and always move faster than they appear.

Head Phones & Announcements
Headphones & Volume

We understand that riders wish to be as comfortable as they can while riding our trains. But remember, train announcements are there for a reason and if you hear them playing, you may wish to take a second and listen. If you do wear headphones, please keep a few things in mind ...
