Stay Safe on Escalators

  • No distractions! Put away electronic devices and cell phones.
  • Be extra careful when taking that first step.
  • Don’t go against traffic – check the escalator direction.
  • Grasp the handrail.
  • Stand in the middle of the step and face forward.
  • Hold children firmly by the hand.
  • Keep hands, feet and clothing clear of moving parts.
  • Never set items on the steps or handrails.

Courtesy Counts
Be someone who makes it a better ride for everyone: Take your coffee cups and litter with you when you leave the train.
