Celebrating 100 Years of Safety

As APTA's Bus and Rail Safety & Security Awards program marked its 100th anniversary this year, the association is honoring the industry's commitment to safety with a special publication (accessible here) that tracks 100 of public transit's most notable milestones, including the Birney Safety Car, rolled out in 1916 in major cities across the country. This lightweight streetcar is considered to be the first mass-produced standard streetcar in North America. It introduced many safety features, variations of which are standard today.
