NEW! Commuter Rail Advisory System for Severe Weather
We want you to have the information you need to get to where you’re going!
When the forecast threatens, make sure you allow extra time to get to stations.
And, please be careful in the slippery parking lots, especially during a storm.
New Alert System
To help you be better prepared for weather related schedule changes during the working weekdays, please be on the look-out for our new service level alert system:
How Will I Know?
Our goal is to make the decision for the next day prior to the current day evening rush hour. You will see the signage in the stations, get your regular alerts and we will also alert the press.
What Do the Levels Mean?
They are designed to help you quickly judge the severity of the storm and its impact on service. With severe storms, we also get school and work cancellations so there are often less riders.
Exactly what the Purple Level graphic says: regular daily service.
About one third of the trains will not run. On our newest schedule the trains that will not run are shaded in blue. Cancelling them in advance, instead of last minute will help you better prepare and will help the remaining trains run more reliably.
Express trains will not run express and will stop locally. This should result in the overall delay of 15 to 25 minutes
A severe storm will cause a reduction of just over half of all trains. It will basically be like a weekend schedule with additional trains added on certain lines to make sure we provide at least one rush hour train per line.
Orange Level Schedules
All service will be cancelled. Please remember, even though there are no trains, the tracks will still be live for our snow fighting equipment to bring the service back up!
