  • Streetcars run in the same travel lanes as other vehicles. Listen for whistles, bells or horns.
  • Streetcars cannot swerve out of the way of vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. It is your responsibility to stay out of the streetcar's path.
  • It's OK to drive on streetcar tracks; however, be sure not to follow too closely and allow the streetcar some extra space. Be careful to never hit the streetcar. Hitting the streetcar could lead to a derailment and cause harm.
  • Look for streetcars before making a right turn at a red light. Streetcars are quiet and you may not hear them coming.
  • Do not make a turn from the adjacent lane or center lane in front of the streetcar.
  • Do not attempt to pass a streetcar. The streetcar may block your line of sight. Be always alert for people entering and exiting the vehicle.
  • Park your entire vehicle, including mirrors, within the solid white parking lines. Streetcars cannot go around your car. Parking outside the lines may interrupt our service. Incorrectly parked cars will be subject to towing and a citation.
  • Check for approaching streetcars before opening your vehicle doors.

  • Streetcars cannot swerve out of the way of cyclists.
  • Cross tracks at a right angle, or just walk your bicycle across. Cyclists are more likely to get their wheels stuck or crash when crossing the tracks at an angle of less than 90 degrees.
  • Wet tracks can be slippery. Take caution. Sometimes it's safer to walk your bike across.
  • Be aware of the door zone. This is the space occupied by an open door between moving vehicles and parked cars.
  • Use the green bike boxes at intersections to make left hand turns. Never enter an intersection against the traffic signals.
  • Never stop on the tracks.


  • Streetcars travel in both directions. Always STOP, LOOK and LISTEN.
  • Streetcars cannot stop as quickly as you can. Streetcars traveling at 16 mph take almost 100 feet to stop.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals. They are there for your safety, not as an inconvenience.
  • Wait for the streetcar behind the yellow warning strip on platforms.
  • Cross only at designated crosswalks. There are clearly marked signs showing you safe areas to cross the street.
  • Pedestrians should cross at designated crossings only, especially if trying to board the streetcar. There are clearly marked signs showing you safe areas to cross.
  • Do not cross in front of a streetcar. Even if the streetcar is stopped. Wait for the streetcar to pass before you cross.
  • Watch your heels. Remember to step over tracks to avoid catching shoe heels in the track gap.

Look, Listen, and Live!!!

In case of an emergency, incident, accident or suspicious behavior:
1. Look for the small blue Emergency Notifications System sign at ANY LYNX Blue Line rail crossing. 
2. Look for the 24-hour-monitored emergency phone number on the sign. 
3. Call the number and tell the CATS representative the crossing ID and location identified on the sign.
If you cannot find the sign, please call 911. 

Pedestrian Safety

  • Only cross tracks at designated crosswalks. There are clearly marked signs showing you safe areas to cross the tracks. 
  • Don’t stand on/near the tracks. Trains have an overhang and may still hit you even if you are not on the track. 
  • Ensure you give yourself enough room for the crossing gate to come down in front of you. If you are too far forward, the gate could hit you or you could end up standing too close to the train. Use the textured warning strips as an indicator of where to stand.
  • Watch for signs and signals. There will be red flashing lights or a train warning symbol at the crossing to indicate a train is coming. These symbols always mean stop. 
  • Never try to outrun the train or gate. When you see the gate coming down or the train warning symbol, stop; do not run across. 
  • Never go onto the tracks and keep away from overhead wires – they may be electrified. If you drop something, alert a station agent, police officer or company personnel. 
  • Trespassing on and around tracks is unlawful. That means you may be subject to criminal prosecution for being and remaining on or near the track without authorization. 
  • Cross tracks at a right angle or walk your bike across
  • Don’t let your smartphone be a distraction. Tracks are for trains, not selfies. Stay alert. Stay alive.​

Egress Gates

ONLY in an emergency – not for everyday use. 

So, remember:

  • Only use an egress during an emergency – not just so you can take a shortcut.
  • Pedestrian crossings are always available at every station and are theONLY places to enter the platform or cross the tracks.​
  • Always follow posted signs and signals. They’re there for your protection.​

  • Using these gates improperly could result in getting hit by the train.
  • Exiting or entering the platform using the egress gate is considered trespassing, which is illegal.
  • If you're caught using an egress gate inappropriately, you could be ARRESTED and/or pay a fine.

Crossing Left Across the Tracks

  • Be sure to stop at the solid white line.Stopping behind the line will ensure there is enough space for the crossing gate to come down and not hit your vehicle. 
  • Watch for the red flashing lights and train warning signsFlashing lights should always be treated like a stop sign and provide warning of an incoming train. 
  • Don’t try to speed through the intersection or you may get stuck in between the lowered gates across the intersection. These gates ensure that all traffic from all sides of the intersection remains off the tracks. 
  • Never drive around lowered crossing gatesIt is illegal and dangerous. Even if you can’t see the rail vehicle, that doesn’t mean it isn’t coming. 
  • Do NOT proceed through the intersection until the gate arms are in their upright positions and the red lights have stopped flashingIf another train is approaching the intersection, the gate arms will come back down in the process of returning to their upright position.​
