2021 Transit Safety & Security Report
Rail Safety
Another area of focus in 2021 was enhancing
safety of rail components and
rail transit workers.
FTA's Rail Safety Data Report 20072018
(RSDR), which was released September
2021, shows the fatality rate on
rail transit systems increased .7 percent
per year on average, while the injury rate
increased 1.5 percent per year on average.
The RSDR found two percent of
fatalities on rail transit systems were
assigned a workforce or infrastructure
probable cause. Most rail transit fatalities
are due to suicide or trespassing,
customer actions or public actions.
FTA recently closed a request for
information (RFI) this fall seeking input
on potential transit worker safety
mitigations, including potential minimum
safety requirements for Roadway
Worker Protection (RWP) programs
and transit worker assault prevention.
FTA Acting Associate Administrator
for Transit Safety and Oversight and
Chief Safety Officer Gail Lyssy told
Mass Transit RWP was identified by
both the National Transportation Safety
Board (NTSB) and FTA's Transit Advisory
Committee for Safety as an area
of interest with both recommending
FTA action. Lyssy said the RFI will assist
FTA as it evaluates potential actions
to mitigate risks to transit workers.
In related rail safety news, the
Federal Railroad Administration
renewed the charter of the Railroad
Safety Advisory Committee (RSAC)
for a two-year period. RSAC includes
industry representatives from stakeholder
groups, including freight and
passenger rail, transit, contracting,
labor, supplier and manufacturing
entities. RSAC was first formed in 1996
as a forum in which federal officials
and the rail industry could collaborate
through the rulemaking process and
program development.
One of the more pressing issues that
developed late in 2021 has been the recommendation
by the NTSB for rail transit
agencies and commuter railroads to assess
gauge specifications of their fleets and
urge immediate corrective action should
any wheelsets be found to be outside these
specifications. The safety alert follows
an Oct. 12, 2021, derailment involving a
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit
Authority MetroRail Blue line train in
Arlington, Va. NTSB's preliminary report
determined the incident occurred when
a wheelset on the fourth car of the train
derailed. The same wheelset derailed and
