Metro Light Rail Safety Brown Bag Seminar
“Safety Around the Tracks”
Location: Biodesign Institute Auditorium
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:-00 p.m.
“The Metro Light Rail train testing will expand into a zone that includes the tracks that run through campus by the end of June or early July. From then until its opening in December, those adjacent to the line should be expecting a train at any time, from either direction. Bring your lunch and listen to a Metro official explain what to expect and how to stay safe around the tracks.”
Remember students, not only is your life on the line but your wallet is too.. Starting September 1st, you could get nailed for a $150.00 ticket if you cross in the wrong spot.
Don’t forget, Light Rail is soon going to be traveling between the Phoenix and Tempe sites. This should be a huge convenience for many students but it is something that will be new. New, as in, learning curve.. Don’t be a statistic. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the route, the cars and don’t forget to enjoy the ride come December! Please check back often for more info and details..
