Safety is our top priority at SMART. In preparation for beginning service in late Spring, SMART is conducting systemwide testing along the initial 43-mile route, from the northern part of Santa Rosa to downtown San Rafael. SMART’s testing includes running trains, operating railroad crossing gates at intersections and verifying that our train control and communications systems are accurate and working effectively.
Please be careful and alert at all railroad crossings. Always expect a train, drivers must never stop on the tracks, and never walk on the tracks. SMART provides free rail safety presentations for schools and community groups, sign up here.
