PNR posted an infographic on their official FB page that tells the riding public the steps that need to be taken to be allowed to board their train.

First, the passenger has to go to the PNR sani station, to disinfect or wash his/her hands.

The passenger’s temperature will be checked by a thermal scanner.

The security personnel will then conduct a security check on the passenger.

After this, the passenger can proceed to the ticket booth to pay for his or her fare while still maintaining social distancing.

The passenger can then proceed to the waiting area but should stay only in the marked area while waiting for the train.

Train personnel will guide the passengers to the right train coach to maintain proper social distancing while inside the train.

All passengers are advised to maintain social distancing while waiting for a train, while on board and while leaving the train station.
