Free masks and hand sanitizer are still being distributed at stations and on trains for any rider that needs. “Having PPE easily accessible for customers at the vending machines is a key part of welcoming more riders back throughout our service region” says Catherine Rinaldi, president of Metro-North Railroad. “We are working tirelessly to ensure their safety by coming up with innovative solutions like this and continuing to aggressively clean our trains and stations. This is a reminder to customers that they must wear a mask while riding with us – and now there is no excuse, if they lost or forgot their mask – they can buy one.”
Customers can find the PPE in vending machines at the following 12 Metro-North Railroad locations:
Croton-Harmon
Dobbs Ferry
Fordham
Hastings-on-Hudson
Harlem-125th Street
North White Plains
Port Chester
