BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Brightline train has suspended all service until further notice. The suspension comes as Tri-Rail now requires all riders to wear a face mask or face covering, in compliance with the Palm Beach County executive order.
From Palm Beach County:
- Following the emergency orders issued by Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) is supporting the effort for people to use facial coverings while using Tri-Rail services. “All staff and contractors have been given a directive to wear face masks while working onboard trains and at stations,” said Steven L. Abrams, SFRTA Executive Director. “Now we ask our passengers to follow this order, as it will ensure that we can keep operating our services as safely as possible and stop the spread of the Coronavirus.”
- Seats onboard Tri-Rail trains have been taped off to discourage passengers from sitting next to each other and continue social distancing practices, while train conductors are making regular announcements to remind passengers to wear masks while riding.
- Tri-Rail continues to offer an amended schedule until further notice, with 18-trains every 2 hours starting at 4:17 a.m. on weekdays, and 12-trains every 3-hours starting at 5:17 a.m. on weekends.
- Trains have suspended fares and are operating on a modified schedule:
18 trains on Weekdays, 12 trains on Saturday, 12 trains on Sunday.
