Operation Lifesaver (OLI) released five new transit posters in English and Spanish for nationwide use to remind transit riders to make safe choices when traveling on transit and commuter trains.
The posters feature close-up face images capturing transit rider attention with actionable safety advice:
- Stay behind the raised marking or yellow line.
- Wait for trains to stop before approaching.
- Let others exit before you board.
- Once on board, stay seated or hold on.
- No riding bikes, scooters or skateboards on platforms.
“Our new eye-catching transit safety posters are intended for use on trains, in stations and in communities,” says OLI Executive Director Rachel Maleh. “Each poster includes a QR code to access our recently released transit safety pledges for adults and children. We encourage everyone to follow these tips and make safe choices when riding transit trains. Together, we can stop track tragedies.”
Maleh noted the new posters are available on the OLI website, as well as to transit agencies to size as appropriate and co-brand with their logos if they choose. Funding for the posters was provided by the Federal Transit Administration.
