Bay Area rail agencies use September to focus on train safety

VTA train

September is when rail agencies remind the public about staying safe around tracks and crossings.

Caltrain and VTA are highlighting safety this month.

Caltrain is promoting agency-created rail safety videos, in addition to promoting rail safety and suicide prevention messaging on our various social media platforms throughout the month, using #CaltrainSafe and #railsafety.

VTA is asking the public to “Stay Alert Stay Alive" and has created a safety video.

In the North Bay, SMART has a standing web page addressing rail safety.
