As part of FTA’s effort to promote continuous safety improvement in the rail transit industry, these Guidelines for Performing Rail Transit Agency Accident Investigations were developed to provide rail transit agencies (RTAs) with leading transit industry practices for performing investigations. The supporting Rail Transit Agency Accident Investigations – Background Research provides a comprehensive examination of each SMS element to broaden the understanding of how each component complements another. Each RTA is responsible for tailoring its event investigation processes to its unique operating environments, the complexity of the operation, and the mode of transportation provided. These locally-developed processes should correspond to a transit agency’s existing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) or emergency plan.
