Back To Front Page


In accordance with Gov. Eric Holcomb’s new executive order, issued on Friday, the South Shore commuter line will continue to require passengers and employees to wear masks or face coverings in its stations and aboard its trains.

If a passenger is in need of a mask, the South Shore will provide one free of charge.

Passengers are reminded to maintain six feet of social distance from other persons aboard trains or at the stations.

“All businesses in the state are required to enforce the mask mandate or face possible closure,” the South Shore said. “The South Shore line will strictly enforce the mask mandate at stations and on trains. Passengers who do not comply with the order will be subject to removal from trains. In accordance with the revised executive order and the new enforcement provisions, the South South line will discontinue use of the ‘mask noncompliance’ car, effective immediately.”

“Pursuant to the order, certain passengers are exempt from the mask mandate, including passengers with medical/health issues and children under the age of 8.”
