Metra COVID-19 Safety Precautions in Place


Are you ready to get moving again? You can feel confident when commuting on @Metra trains. Everyone on board is wearing masks or face coverings, staying safely separated with only one person per seat and keeping the aisles clear.

Did you know that @Metra has conducted over 5 million rides since the onset of COVID-19? Of those millions of rides, there hasn’t been a single incidence of COVID-19 linked to the trains through contract tracing. That’s proof of just how safe it is to hop on one of the trains to get to the places you need to get to the most. 

Since the onset of COVID-19, Metra has kept their trains running and made continuous improvements to further enhance safety like installing hand sanitizer dispensers on every train car and requiring masks or face coverings on board. We continue to take every precaution to safeguard commuters and our workforce and have adopted the most stringent safety and cleaning protocols available to the transportation industry. Most recently, we announced a three-stage filtration and purification process that will use ultraviolet lights, electrical fields and stronger filters to create the safest possible environment for riders.
