Roadway Worker Protection programs, as well as
transit worker assault prevention - two areas that
are really important to the transit industry right now
- making sure we're protecting our transit workers
across the country. "
Why 'Now' is Important
for These Challenges
Lyssy explains transit worker assault prevention
and RWP were identified as top concerns within
the industry.
" Roadway Worker Protection was identified by
both the [National Transportation Safety Board
(NTSB)], as well as FTA's own Transit Advisory
Committee for Safety (TRACS) as areas of interest,
and both recommended that FTA take action
to address these issues. In fact, NTSB did include
improving rail worker safety as part of its 2021 to
2022 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety
Improvements, " said Lyssy.
NTSB's Most Wanted List recognized that RWP
regulations have been in place at the Federal Railroad
Administration (FRA) since 1997. These regulations
govern the passenger rail operations that connect to
the national network. Similar regulations for lightAPTA

Dallas Area Rapid Transit
DART INSTALLED plexiglass respiratory droplet
shields on all buses to help protect operators
and passengers. While many agencies see
these shields as a mitigating step to reduce
the spread of COVID-19, the barriers can also
provide added security for operators.
rail and heavy rail systems that fall under FTA jurisdiction
have not been established.
TRACS issued a final report on RWP in July 2021
with eight recommendations, including requiring
secondary warning systems, funding new research,
developing RWP safety technology reliability criteria,
fatigue management, behavior-based safety
systems and more.
