The system was designed with safety in mind and continues to work towards a high safety record. The most common light rail vehicle accident types for on-street systems are:
To improve traffic operations and minimize these and other common collision types, the following features were incorporated into the planning, design, and/or construction of the Valley Metro Rail system:
At any time of the day or night, you can find yourself driving near a Valley Metro vehicle. Obey traffic signals and don’t take the risk - drive aware.
Many of the signals added to light rail intersections are commonly used signals. Others are simply there to make you aware. Please pay close attention to all traffic signals.
Light rail is expanding and more tracks are being built. For construction updates, please check Valley Metro’s Traffic Restrictions page and sign up for Construction Alerts.
Be alert - be safe. As construction continues, bus stops, sidewalks and driving lanes may move. Watch and follow signs that tell you where to walk, bicycle or drive. Stay outside orange cones and construction fences. Use crosswalks and follow traffic signals. Always be aware of your surroundings.
