Today marks the start of the first-ever National Rail Safety Week. The effort was organized by non-profit rail safety group Operation Lifesaver to remind riders, drivers and pedestrians to stay safe near rail lines. UTA is joining in the effort by participating in rail safety events all week long. For more information about staying safe near trains, visit our rail safety page
