TRANSPORTATION SAFETY INFORMATION SYSTEM (TRANSIS)

The system contains national data on accidents, injuries, and fatalities by month and by transportation mode. Not all modes report all the data requested because their data collection systems are not as comprehensive or do not operate at the same frequency. When available, data on accident and fatality rates are included in the system. The system contains information on safety problems and safety program activities. The system also contains summary statistics, discussions of intermodal safety activities, and a feature article for each quarterly report. The modes included in the system are highway, rail and guided pathway, aviation, waterborne transport, recreational boating, pipelines, and hazardous materials. Output: the major output is transportation safety information report (quarterly). The report contains narrative and graphic presentations of modal safety performance and a discussion of safety problems and program highlights within each mode. It also contains a summary statistics section with an intermodal analysis of safety trends. A series of wall charts for the use of the secretary are generated annually by the system, graphically depicting safety performance within each mode and for the total transportation system for the previous year. The data on modal safety performance and information on ongoing safety activities for this system are obtained from quarterly submissions by TRANSIS representatives in each of the DOT operating elements.
