In response to community concerns about noise the San Rafael and Novato City Councils have established a Quiet Zone effective immediately. The train horn will not blow at railroad crossings.

September is Railroad Safety Month

See Tracks? Think Train!

As SMART progresses with its systemwide testing, we encourage everyone to be #TrackSMART by following railroad safety practices. SMART is asking motorists and pedestrians to be alert and aware at all crossing gates and remember the following safety tips:

  • Never stop your car on the railroad tracks. Do not cross the tracks until you are sure your vehicle will be able to get across safely.
  • Please be patient: Obey all crossing signals and signage.
  • Never walk on railroad tracks. Walking on the tracks is unsafe and illegal.
  • Stay alert near all railroad crossings: Don’t be distracted by cell phones or headphones.
