Safety Education and Awareness


The safety of our employees, passengers and the general public is Metra’s top priority. Metra’s ongoing efforts to improve safety throughout our system include numerous programs that incorporate education, engineering and enforcement activities.

Metra’s Operation Lifesaver Station Safety Blitz Program is a part of our ongoing safety education efforts designed to enhance passenger awareness about the potential hazards of disregarding pedestrian railroad warning devices. About 50 stations are selected each year. A team of Metra Safety Department personnel, Metra Police and loc police and fire personnel engage commuters by handing out printed educational materials explaining the importance of obeying railroad crossing warning devices and discussing general railroad safety. A short 2½-minute Operational Lifesaver video stressing the importance of safety in and around railroad property is also shown inside the station.
