The South Shore
commuter line is inviting riders to look for the ‘Sanitized for Rider
Safety’ seal on trains and in stations within the next several weeks.
Sanitized for Rider
Safety is the South Shore’s comprehensive cleaning program which includes
sanitization procedures, safety recommendations for riders, and new
resources like hand sanitizing stations.
“We want our riders
and crews to know that we have their safety at the forefront of our
service,” South Shore President Michael Noland said. “We know that health
and safety concerns are now at the top of everyone’s minds, and we are
hoping that the South Shore can offer peace of mind as riders start and end
their days with us.”
sanitization procedures include disinfecting seats, windows, crash pads,
handrails, door handles, head rests, and grab handles. Each train car is
mopped with a stringent disinfectant, and the South Shore has purchased
state-of-the-art equipment that fogs cars with disinfectant.
The South Shore is
also recommending the following guidelines for passengers:
-- Utilize hand
sanitization stations available on each train car.
-- Refrain from
congregating in train vestibules.
-- Avoid touching
your mouth, nose, or eyes while on the train.
-- Wash hands
frequently and follow CDC recommendations for handwashing.
-- Cover your mouth
and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
-- Respect the
personal space of all passengers to the best of your ability.
-- Wear a mask or
face covering while in stations and on the train.
“At this time,
riders are required to wear face masks or face coverings while in stations
and while on trains,” the South Shore said. “The South Shore thanks
passengers for their patience and cooperation during this time.”
