CSX participates in the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Family Fun Day and Fall Festival


On Saturday, October 10, 2105 CSX representatives from State Government and Community Affairs and Corporate Communications participated in the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) Family Fun Day and Fall Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, where team members shared rail safety messages and materials with more than 1,500 MARTA employees and family members.

Quintin Kendall, vice president-State Government and Community Affairs, kicked off the formal program by communicating our shared priority: “MARTA and CSX have a lot in common – we are both transportation companies that serve our communities and we both take safety very seriously.  Whether you are on the railroad, driving a bus or car or walking down the street – safety must be a way of life.” 

There was non-stop action at CSX’s Play It Safe booth, where MARTA employees and their families took the CSX pledge to Play It Safe around railroad tracks; NASCAR driver Regan Smith signed autographs and gave safety tips; and adventurous participants tested their skills in the #34 Play It Safe car driving simulator. 

The event was just one component of a multi-pronged approach that we've adopted in our collaboration with MARTA.  Earlier this year, after experiencing a few high profile safety incidents, the CSX team recognized the need for rail safety education and awareness among transit operators, and as a result, worked with MARTA to develop a program that is focused on our shared commitment to safety. 

Program highlights include:

  • In partnership with the Southern Region FRA Grade Crossing Managers and Georgia Operation Lifesaver, CSX has conducted seven rail safety presentations for approximately 250 professional bus operators, averaging two classes per month with 30-40 MARTA employees per class.
  • Two MARTA bus supervisors have taken the Operation Lifesaver (OL) training and are now Operation Lifesaver authorized volunteers. This allows MARTA access to OL materials that can be incorporated into their current training and internal communication programs.
  • MARTA received an endorsement from Georgia Operation Lifesaver for an FTA grant that will support MARTA Rail Safety for a Passenger Education Initiative, designed to educate MARTA riders on how to safely access the platforms, board the trains and avoid the inherent safety hazards of rail.

“We are making significant headway in promoting rail safety awareness among MARTA employees, families and riders and are working hard to develop strong relationships with MARTA leaders so we can continue this successful collaboration going forward,” said Quintin.
