At Metrolink, safety is foundational. Our agency has taken steps to protect against the spread of the COVID-19 disease while protecting our team members and riders.

 

Transportation has been designated as an essential service at the federal level and was exempted in the state and local Stay at Home orders.

Please know that we support efforts at the federal, state and local levels to stop the spread of the virus and keep our team members and riders safe, including asking people who are sick to stay home, requiring non-essential workers to telecommute, reiterating and requiring social distancing practices and providing our critical front-line employees with masks, gloves and extra sanitizer.
