Rail Safety Week 10 – 16 August 2020

Person holding up hand with words "I am #RailSafe"

Are you #RailSAFE? During Rail Safety Week (and always) we are again shining a spotlight on how you can stay safe and have a great journey on Canberra’s light rail services.

Rail Safety Week is an annual community awareness week held in Australia and New Zealand that reminds everyone how to be safe on and around rail services.

Transport Canberra and Canberra Metro Operations (CMET) are continually committed to providing passengers with a safe travel environment. We need your help to ensure everyone stays safe when using light rail.

Transport Canberra is working alongside CMET and key ACT Government agencies to increase rail safety awareness in the Canberra region and promote light rail safety.

Pay attention, take responsibility and be #RailSAFE.

Remember to be SAFE:

S – stay off the tracks

A – avoid distractions

F – follow instructions

E – encourage others to be SAFE

Being alert, paying attention and taking responsibility when you travel on light rail means a great, safe journey for everyone. Join in on Facebook and Twitter and show us how you are being #RailSAFE during Rail Safety Week 2020.
