Safety on the Subway

Travelling around the Subway can be lots of fun, especially for young children, but there are a few rules to remember to keep everyone safe.

  • Please keep clear of the platform edge.
  • Stay close to the adult you’re with at all times.
  • If the doors are closing, wait for the next train.
  • Let a member of staff know if you are lost or hurt.
  • Keep calm if you hear the fire alarm and make your way to the nearest exit.
  • All adults please wear a mask, wash your hands often and keep your distance from other households.
