Rail Transit Safety and Security

The CPUC has safety and security regulatory authority over all rail transit agencies (RTAs) in California and works in cooperation with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the RTAs to enhance public safety and security.  The CPUC’s Rail Transit Safety Section (RTSS) focuses on verification of the System Safety and Security Plans of each RTA to ensure that these plans meet all state and federal rules and regulations.

The CPUC prescribes safety and security requirements for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of heavy rail transit, light-rail transit, trolleys, and funicular systems.  The CPUC ensures that all rail transit system extensions and new construction projects undergo a safety certification review and approval.
