Look for safety tips at Rail Runner stations, on the train, and across Rio Metro's social media throughout the week.



Stop Track Tragedies

While the number of highway-rail crossing collisions, deaths and injuries has dropped over the past five decades, it’s still a startling fact that about every three hours in the U.S., a person or vehicle is hit by a train. The goal of Rail Safety Week is to raise awareness across the United States of the need for rail safety education and empower the general public to keep themselves safe near highway-rail grade crossings and railroad rights-of-way.

Together, we can save families and communities from enduring these heartbreaking tragedies.
