Stay Healthy: Safety is a Shared Responsibility

Safety is a foundational value at Metrolink. The Metrolink team has been actively monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 – commonly referred to as the coronavirus. We would like to let you know about the extra steps we are taking to protect against the spread of this virus.

Effective immediately:

  • Metrolink has increased the number of cleaning staff so passenger cars are cleaned more frequently throughout the day.
  • We are cleaning and wiping down surfaces such as doors, restrooms, head and armrests, handrails, tables and trash areas using disinfecting products.
  • We are ensuring that the hand sanitizers onboard trains are filled more often.

There are also steps you can take to protect yourself from illness. Based upon advice from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Do not touch your face.
  • Clean and disinfect items and surfaces that you touch frequently.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with tissues – then throw away the tissues and wash your hands. If no tissues are available, cough or sneeze into your elbow – not your hands.
  • Practice simple social distancing techniques – use verbal salutations instead of handshakes.

The LA County Public Health DepartmentCDC and WHO have provided some good resources for you.

Please know we will continue to do what we can to protect you and we appreciate your partnership in doing what you can to keep safe and healthy.

Thank you for riding Metrolink.

  1. as a daily rider on metrolink since since 1997 I am a bit disappointed on the lack of some critical decisions. The Governor of California made masks mandatory on June 18 and Metrolink has been lax in enforcing it. As a concerned rider I am appreciative in the new signage and added features two help keep the virus from spreading but new non regular riders and now some of the regular riders have also become lax. Metrolink needs to follow the steps that other business are doing and enforce the mask policy, The safety announcements need to be updated with the words requiring masks and if needed passengers need to be told to disembark at next station if mask is not worn.
    The only way that some kind of normality will come back is if corporations and public services set rules.
