More on Social Distancing

While we have relaxed capacity limits on platforms and railcars, social distancing may still be observed while ridership is low. The change is consistent with the latest CDC guidelines and those of other state and federal agencies.

Currently, we're averaging a small percentage of typical ridership. Social distancing remains easy to accomplish  and we're actively preparing for the return of more riders as they start returning to their offices. We're looking into various tools riders may be able to use for crowding alerts but, for now, we recommend checking average ridership by train on our website.

We expect in the near term that our trains can provide socially-distanced transportation to those returning to their places of employment. We are monitoring ridership and announcements from the region’s major employers as to their reopening plans and using the information to guide our decision-making. 

While very little about this pandemic is predictable, one thing our riders can count on in these challenging times is our commitment to their health and safety.
