Maintaining A Safe Environment

The safety of our passengers is our top priority. Amtrak has implemented new cleaning and disinfecting protocols nationwide that are in place on Downeaster trains. Crews and passengers are required to wear a face covering while in stations, while boarding and onboard the train. Stations have been updated with signage and other enhancements to promote public health and physical distancing. The number of passengers per train is limited to 50% of capacity so riders are able to adhere to CDC physical distancing guidelines.
