As there are no actual rail track safety or maintenance standards promulgated for transit, this synthesis offers state-of-the-practice information across a range of older and newer U.S. rail transit agencies on track inspection practices and policies. The goal is to provide rail transit agencies with a knowledge base of information that might help them to develop their own set of track safety and maintenance standards. Basic information gathered here includes agency staffing, agency organization and characteristics, track inspection program criteria, training and certification, procurement, and track safety practices.  View Report
