Rail Systems Standards and Best Practices, Phase 2

The objective of this project is to support the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) effort to further develop and implement rail system standards and best practices that will improve system safety, reliability and achieve cost efficiency. Under Phase 2 of the project, APTA will continue to work with the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) to develop and ballot rail transit vehicle electrical interface standards. Other task forces may be established by APTA to prepare relevant industry standards or best practices under the Rail Standards Project Bylaws.
