Safety and Security Technical Support

The objective of this project is to work toward the elimination of transit-related deaths, injuries, property damage and the improvement of personal security and property protection. The FTA Safety and Security Technology Program places special emphasis on the evaluation and deployment of state-of the-art technologies and other innovative enhancements that promote public health and transit safety. This technical assistance project provides the resources necessary to encourage transit professionals in developing an awareness and a culture of technology transfer, foster and disseminate research results and best practices associated with proven safety and security technologies. Promotional material is intended to energize the industry in the deployment of proven safety and security technologies, such as the application of four quadrant highway-rail grade crossing gates integrated into a vehicle detection system. Four quadrant highway-rail grade crossing technology has been successfully demonstrated to enhance safety at light rail grade crossings.
