Metro North officials have held a series of events for National Rail Safety Week with a goal of raising awareness of rail safety. Metro North volunteers were at various train stations in Connecticut on Monday, and at the Brewster station grade-crossing yesterday. The education campaign was done to promote rail and grade-crossing safety to both pedestrians and drivers. This was part of the MTA Railroads’ TRACKS or Together Railroads And Communities Keeping Safe program. Metro North President Catherine Rinaldi says providing a safe experience for riders and the communities they serve is a top priority. Representatives from the New York State and Connecticut Departments of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, Operation Lifesaver, and from the Suicide Response Crisis Center participated in the events.
