On platforms and trains
Stand back from the platform edge.
Don’t lean over the platform edge or go onto the tracks for any reason. If you drop something, tell a police officer or station personnel.
Wait for the train to stop before stepping forward.
Don’t run on platforms.
Watch the gap when you’re boarding and exiting trains.
At railroad crossings
Always obey the lowered gates, flashing lights, and ringing bells at railroad crossings. Trains can approach quickly from either direction.
Never walk or run across crossing gates.
Trespassing on tracks is illegal and extremely dangerous. Never use train tracks as a shortcut. Cross tracks only at designated crossing areas.
In case of an emergency
Familiarize yourself with safety signage in cars so you will know how to locate and operate emergency exits.
Your best protection is to remain calm, think clearly, and follow the instructions of the train crew.
If you must evacuate a train
Stop: Don’t try to leave the train without instructions or help from the train crew. The safest place for you is on the train.
Look: If there is an emergency, look for a member of the train crew and report it immediately.
Listen: Follow the instructions of our train crews as well as the instructions of emergency personnel on the scene.
