refresh & renew

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide you with a safe and comfortable ride, an estimated $6.5 million in improvements and repairs are planned for 13 rail stations across five lines as well as improvements at three bus turnarounds as part of the Spring 2024 Refresh & Renew (R&R) program.

Through the end of May, crews will be working to improve the customer experience at our stations, ensuring our customers a safe and clean ride as part of the Spring program. The stations that will receive improvements during the Summer and Fall programs of Refresh & Renew will be announced at later dates. Crews will be completing Refresh & Renew work through November.
