Metro-North continues to undertake the most aggressive cleaning and disinfecting program in agency history — fully sanitizing our stations every 12 hours, and trains every 24 hours.
On all Metro-North property and until further notice, all customers are required to wear a mask or face covering and to maintain social distance, particularly while in Metro-North stations, on our platforms, and in Grand Central Terminal; to board trains at all available doors and to take seats that maximize social distancing.
We also recommend that customers consider riding our trains at non-peak hours, such as before 7 a.m. and after 6 p.m., where possible.
At Metro-North, we’re here for the region’s critical workers and first responders. Please only use the trains for essential travel.
