The Rail Safety Committee is dedicated to helping member systems maintain the excellent safety record of the industry and developing recommendations for improvements. The committee is comprised of APTA members engaged in rail transit modal operations, products, and services. Modal operations represented include a wide variety of rapid transit systems: high speed rail, automated guideways, light rail systems, trolley and streetcar systems, inclined planes, subways, monorails, and people movers. This committee supports the Safety & Security Technical Forum.

APTA Committees and Subcommittees are now part of APTAconnect, APTA’s members-only, secure online community space specifically designed to connect you to your peers, colleagues, and friends.

Our online communities are aligned with APTA’s highly valued committees. If you’re a member of a committee, you’re automatically a member of its corresponding online community.

Committee membership is open to all employees of APTA members in good standing, and participation in one or more committees/subcommittees is encouraged and welcomed.

Except for those committees listed as “by appointment only,” you may join a committee or subcommittee by using the Join a Committee page (you must be logged in to access the page).
