Partnerships & Programs
As part of its oversight function, FRA has many programs and initiatives that help foster a safe railroad environment nationwide. Additionally, FRA personnel either sponsor or are represented on boards, committees, and task forces that share information or provide forums for collaborative efforts. This site offers links on the side navigation of this page to some of the more prominent safety programs and forums.

NEW** The new Railroad Information Sharing Environment (RISE) is a voluntary, non-regulatory, non-punitive, data-driven safety partnership consisting of railroad stakeholders, including FRA, to advance railroad safety. Through a data trust, railroad stakeholders voluntarily share data and work collaboratively to address complex railroad safety challenges. The goal of this public-private partnership is to use data for safety improvements that would be difficult for individual railroads to achieve on their own. For more information, visit the RISE webpage.
