U.S. Rail Safety Week To Be Observed Sept. 24-30

Operation Lifesaver Inc., the national rail safety education nonprofit, is working in partnership with U.S. DOT, APTA and other organizations to observe the first U.S. Rail Safety Week, Sept. 24-30.

The schedule includes “Transit Safety Thursday” on Sept. 28. Safe behavior for public transit riders and others will be highlighted through partnerships and activities with agencies, including station events and a transit safety digital ad campaign.

“APTA is looking forward to a successful collaboration with OLI during U.S. Rail Safety Week,” said APTA Acting President & CEO Richard White. “We are pleased to work with FTA and many public transit systems across the U.S. to educate communities on how to stay safe when their residents are near light rail and commuter rail lines and streetcars.”

Operation Lifesaver has worked with the public transit community to create a library of materials and social media graphics designed to be shared before, during and after U.S. Rail Safety Week. The materials reinforce safe behavior and warn of the dangers that trains and tracks can pose if citizens do not use caution.

More information on U.S. Rail Safety Week, including downloadable materials and graphics, how organizations can help and current sponsors, is available here.
