At CTrail, the safety of our customers and employees is of the highest importance. We are taking actions based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health experts. These actions, which began the week of March 1, 2020, are being conducted for all CTrail Hartford Line, CTrail Shore Line East, and New Haven Line (Metro-North) commuter rail services. These measures include:
- Nightly sanitizing of all trains including an interior wipe down of high contact surfaces using cleaning and disinfection protocols from the CDC
- Station operators have increased cleaning of stations using CDC-recommended cleaning products and methods
- At our busiest stations, Stamford, Bridgeport and New Haven, touchpoints such as door handles, escalator handrails, and elevator buttons are being wiped down multiple times each day
The State of Connecticut is taking various actions to respond to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). CTrail is also staying in constant communication with state and federal emergency management agencies to adjust our protocols, if necessary.
We will continue to respond to the latest on COVID-19 with the safety of our customers and employees as our highest priority.
Information on the statewide response is available at CT.Gov/Coronavirus.
