Coronavirus precautions at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station

PHILADELPHIA -- On average, Philadelphia's 30th Street Station serves more than 10,000 people per day. Because of the coronavirus concerns, it seems fewer people are opting for public transit. In turn, they've reduced some train service- canceling low volume trains and upped their cleaning procedures.

Larry Stier volunteers at the traveler's aid booth inside 30th Street Station.

"For the first time I came in with a box of sanitary wipes and wiped down all the surfaces and we're going to continue to do that," said Stier.
