Coronavirus: safe travel thanks to protective measures.

Coronavirus: safe travel thanks to protective measures.

Protection measures to respect on public transportation.

With regard to the development of the situation linked to the spread of the Coronavirus, TILO reminds travellers of the importance of hygiene rules, which are the most effective countermeasure to reduce the risk of infection. We therefore call on you to refer to the information from the competent authorities.

 

 

Protection measures on public transportation in Ticino:

  • Keep your distance. Be considerate of each other and keep your distance: at stops, counters and ticket machines, when getting on and off the train and, if possible, whilst on board.
  • Wear a protective face mask. All persons over the age of 12 will have to wear a mask on public transportation. This applies, among other things, to railway stations with their platforms, subways and shops. You can find information on the correct use of protective face masks on the FOPH website.
  • Avoid peak times. If possible, avoid traditional morning and evening commuting times and use less busy connections instead. TILO will be supporting passengers by providing as much space as possible on trains.
  • Buy tickets online. The protection plan for passengers and staff allows temporarily closed ticket counters to be reopened and for opening hours to be extended. Nevertheless, we would like to ask our customers to buy tickets online, via apps, or from ticket machines if possible, and to pay with contactless methods at the ticket counters.
  • Observe hygiene rules. Customers can wash their hands according to hygiene recommendations in on-board restrooms, where available, and in train-station restrooms. Disinfectant dispensers will be placed at the entrances to larger stations. Dispensers are available at the entrances and exits of travel centres.
  • Leave seat spaces. TILO will be supporting passengers by providing as much space as possible on trains.
