Get On Board with Rail Safety Week

Join us in raising awareness for rail safety during this year's Rail Safety Week happening from September 18 - 24. CATS is calling on residents across the Greater Charlotte Area to come together, learn and actively contribute to safer communities around railroads and transit lines.

Why Rail Safety Matters

Rail safety is not just a matter of precaution; it's a commitment to protecting lives and fostering secure communities. Every year countless lives are affected by avoidable accidents around railroads and transit systems. Ensuring rail safety means preventing tragedies, preserving well-being and creating an environment where both pedestrians and commuters can move freely without fear. At CATS, we believe that raising awareness about safe practices around rail crossings and transit lines is a responsibility we all share. By educating ourselves and our communities about the importance of adhering to safety guidelines we are actively contributing to the protection of lives and the promotion of safer journeys for everyone. How Can You Participate:

Stay Informed: Follow CATS on social media for daily rail safety tips and information that can help keep you and your loved ones safe around railroads and transit lines.

Spread the Word: Share our Rail Safety Week posts and resources on your social media accounts to help educate your friends, family, and neighbors about the importance of rail safety.
