Emergency Lighting and Signage for Rail Transit Passenger Vehicles

This study collected information necessary to issue recommendations, voluntary standards, or guidance documents related to emergency lighting and signage for rail transit passenger vehicles. Industry needs identified include signage related to emergency egress near a third rail, signage for emergency personnel that would relay emergency information, and signage that is more internationally-recognizable. Current standards were evaluated for necessary modifications to make them applicable to rail transit; results indicate that non-transit rail standards would need some modification, but rail transit standards could be implemented without modifications.
