MTA provided this list of procedures regarding entry to the Terminal Station:

  • All doors are locked except the main, front door.
  • Before entering the building, everyone is required to wear a face covering affixed to the head that covers both the nose and mouth.
  • Everyone entering the building will be required to check in with the security guard seated at the door.
  • Terminal Station restrooms will be closed.
