"During this period of heightened precautions, we are tripling the frequency of cleaning of high contact areas at stations. We disinfect all high contact areas on the train and perform steam cleaning of train seats during nightly deep cleaning.

"Besides that, stronger disinfectants are being used by our cleaners. Hand sanitiser is provided at our Ticket Counters. We have advised our staff to practice common-sense measures to limit unnecessary exposure. We are doing everything possible to assure the public that taking public transportation is safe. We regret any impact these changes may have on your travel plans," ERL said.
