Rail safety is a team effort and everyone needs to do their part in sharing knowledge and facts that will help deter unsafe behavior and reduce incidents along tracks and trains. While we won’t be able to host in-person events this year, we will still have plenty of educational signage on our system as well as online resources available!
For those who need a refresher, here are our top five rail safety tips:
- Never walk on or around train tracks.
Never go around lowered crossing gates.
Obey all warning signals and devices.
Look and listen for trains in both directions.
Never run to catch the train
Metro also provides transit safety presentations to schools within a half-mile radius of the A Line (Blue), E Line (Expo), and L Line (Gold). As LAUSD schools are continuing with distance learning this fall, Metro’s Community Education team will be conducting virtual presentations and virtual tours of Union Station, as well as offering our e-learning curriculum.
The presentation reviews safety concepts along all Metro’s light-rail alignments and is also available in Spanish
