How you can travel safely
- Use handrails (and hand sanitizer) in stations and trains.
- Be careful boarding and exiting trains. Don’t move between train cars.
- Don’t run, especially on wet or icy surfaces.
- Listen for station announcements and check digital signs in stations for updates.
- Check the weather and transit service status before you travel. If the weather is severe enough, it might be safer to not travel at all if you can avoid it.
