Rail Safety

The Oregon Department of Transportation Public Transportation Division oversees Oregon rail operations to ensure the structural safety of railroad cars, equipment, track, crossings, and signals and to maintain a safe environment for railroad employees.  We also monitor the safety compliance of light rail, streetcar, and trolley service providers.

See our latest video on rail crossing safety, and help us spread the word: your life is worth the wait! Don't get impatient - stand back at the crossing and wait until the gates, lights or bells are deactivated and you receive the green light or walk signal.

Feel free to download and print these crossing safety posters and tips:
