Know Before You Pokémon GO

With the increasing popularity of Niantic's newest app-based, augmented reality game, where players take on the role of Pokémon trainers, we want to remind our customers to stay safe while trying to "catch ‘em all."

Follow the simple safety tips below as you "travel across the land, searching far and wide."

  • Don't let Pokémon Go LURE you into restricted areas like train yards or bus garages or onto train tracks. Always be aware of your surroundings and do not trespass.
  • Pokémon can survive a battle with a train; you can't. When battling inside some of the many gyms located near our stations, please remember to stay a safe distance away from the tracks.
  • Don't be a SLOWPOKE and hold up any commuter traffic when trying to catch a Pokémon. Keep your head up and your phone down until you are safely seated onboard a bus, train or light rail vehicle. Then by all means, catch it!

Always maintain your INSTINCT and VALOR when playing the game. Be aware of your surroundings at all times and follow these simple safety tips so you accomplish the goal of being the very best Pokémon trainer!
