Blue Ribbon Panel Recommends Steps to Improve MTA Rail Safety

A Blue Ribbon Panel of transportation experts studying safety and maintenance practices at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) three railroad operations – Metro-North Railroad, the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and New York City Transit – has released its final recommendations for improvement.

They include creating better data systems to monitor track conditions, adjusting schedules to provide more time for track work, and bolstering the safety culture at Metro-North.

The Blue Ribbon Panel made 29 specific recommendations after more than a year of studying the MTA network, interviewing employees from front-line workers to executives, attending safety training, visiting work sites, and comparing their findings against practices at other railroad operations, Metro-North said.

“The Blue Ribbon Panel believes that safety is fundamental to a high-quality transit operation, and identified many areas where the MTA’s railroad agencies need to improve their management and operations, but the Panel also found the agencies are committed to change and are taking concrete steps to improve their operations and their safety culture,” said Mortimer L. Downey, chair of the Blue Ribbon Panel, who is a former executive director and chief financial officer of the MTA.
