ABSTRACT

Rail Safety Data Report: Rail Transit Safety Data 2007-2018   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Abstract: "This Rail Safety Data Report analyzes event data collected through the State Safety Oversight program and provides a snapshot of the safety performance of the rail transit industry for the twelve-year period of calendar year (CY) 2007 through CY 2018. This report focuses on the types of events that occurred, their consequences in terms of fatalities and injuries, and their likely causes. The report standardizes event, fatality, and injury numbers by 100 million vehicle revenue miles as reported to the National Transit Database. By identifying and analyzing this information, the Federal Transit Administration can develop and conduct research, training, and evaluations targeted at the situations and conditions that pose the greatest risk of harm to passengers, patrons, employees, and members of the public."
