CPMY COVID-19 Policy

Last Update – 08/21/21

To Our Guests:

As we in Michigan are all acutely aware of the ongoing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on our lives, we want to share with you the steps we are taking to help protect the health and safety of our Guests and Staff, which is always our top priority.  To reduce the risk to both our passengers as well as our volunteers, our trains will operate differently than our normal operations, with additional safety measures in place.


we have instituted the following changes:


  • Tickets will be 100% electronic.  You will be e-mailed or texted an e-tickets (QR Code) which you will need to show our staff to be able to ride the train.


  • When you and your party arrive, please go to our ticket office (306 Main Street) and check-in.


  • If anyone in your party show symptoms of being sick, you will not be allowed to board.


Passengers are requested to wear masks and/or face coverings.  Exceptions will be allowed for children under 5 years old and those with a medical condition.

Several of our trains have been canceled for health and safety reasons.



We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). We have developed plans which will allow us to respond timely and appropriately.

If you have purchased tickets for departures that have been canceled, please contact our ticket office at Reservations@mitrain.net for an exchange or refund. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. 

We are urging everyone to follow the MDHHS guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • If you have respiratory symptoms, STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK. Call your health care provider’s office in advance of your visit.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects.


we have implemented guidelines for prevention and response to COVID-19 for all our volunteers, including enhanced cleaning protocols, increasing the frequency of cleaning in all our public spaces.
The most up-to-date guidance on these and other mitigation strategies are available at 


Thank you,
Coopersville & Marne Railway COVID-19 subcommittee.
