L.A. Metro gives customers precautions to avoid flu

Throughout the month of September, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will roll out various efforts under its Flu Prevention Action Plan that communicates flu avoidance information to riders in as many agency channels as possible.

Beginning September 10, rail posters will be placed at station ticket vending machines. Beginning September 18, Metro plans to add flu precaution tips to car cards posted inside buses and trains. "Take-One" brochures will be placed on-board buses and trains as well as Metro Customer Centers and will be featured on the agency's Website, which will also include links to essential local and state health organizations.

Other outreach efforts will include publishing health tips in the October 2009 issue of Metro Monthly and adding health tips messaging to agency telephone hold messages.

To help reduce exposure to flu viruses on the system, Metro has also increased its sanitizing procedures in buses, trains and stations. The agency will monitor the flu situation with appropriate local, state and federal health agencies.
