The 6th annual SafeRail congress, an evolution of the successful PTC World Congress series, aims to instill a culture of rail safety and operational reliability for Class 1, commuter railroads, shortlines and transit agencies across North America.

Global Transport Forum

Officially supported by AAR, and FREE to attend for Government, Railroads and transit agencies, the show responds to increasing demands for safety upgrades and the need for whole system reliability with best practice strategies from 50+ experts speaking on:

  • Complex deployments of PTC & CBTC
  • Analysing data to improve performance and reduce cost
  • Responding to growing cyber security threats
  • Reducing workforce error and enhancing training

"The conference was especially valuable since it offered a forum for a cross-section of the railroad industry - Class 1's, passengers, short-lines, regulators, and vendors. "
- Michael Davis, Consultant, CapGemini US LLC

This is the perfect opportunity to take the pulse of the industry and to hear top industry leaders discuss their vision for safety and security in North American rail. Some of the highlights include:

  • Jeffrey F. Moller, AVP Transportation from the AAR will moderate the keynote, and provide an overview on how to respond to the biggest threats and opportunities for American railroads.
  • Mike Marino, Director / General Manager at Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will use the Pope's recent visit to New York to highlight the ways in which security across transportation networks can be ensured during high profile events.
  • Lisa McGowan, Director PTC Operations, CSX, will discuss the best way to move forward with PTC and reflect on the extended mandate and future of PTC.

  • Yves Desjardin-Siciliano, CEO, VIA Rail Canada
