Transit Safety - Crash Rate

Value: 2.27
Measurement Period: 2015
Location: Allen County
Comparison:

Ohio Urban Public Transit Agencies

What is this Indicator?  This indicator reflects the overall system safety as calculated as the number of accidents that occurred per 100,000 miles of system wide travel.
Why this is important?  Safety is the number one driving objective behind everyday transit operations.  The Federal Transit Administration requires ongoing and strenuous safety programs be implemented in all federally funded public transportation agencies.  Policies and procedures are developed, adopted, and implemented.  Driver training programs and safety meetings are regularly dedicated to discussions of crashes by type and how to avoid such incidents.  Safety performance is audited at the agency and driver level; crash frequency and severity are considered normal measures of transit safety.
Technical Note:  Values are reported by the Transit Authority annually.  Goals are set by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
