Bicycle Safety

As a cyclist, it is important to stay alert when riding around the streetcar tracks. To safely cross the streetcar tracks, cyclists should cross at a 90-degree angle. This also applies to wheelchairs, scooters, skateboards and strollers. Always stop, look and listen before crossing the tracks and whenever possible, find alternate bike friendly streets and routes.

Don’t Get Stuck! Cross Your Bike at a 90 degree Angle

To safely cross the streetcar tracks, cyclists should cross at a 90-degree angle. This also applies to wheelchairs, scooters, skateboards and strollers.

Pedestrian Safety

Obey traffic signals. Use crosswalks.Do not jaywalk. Look & listen before crossing the street (and the tracks). Unplug & don’t text while crossing the tracks.

Look Before You Cross

Streetcars are quiet vehicles, pedestrians are encouraged to LISTEN and LOOK before crossing the street using designated crosswalks.

Use Crosswalks When Crossing the Street

The streetcar travels up to 35 mph meaning it takes more time than a vehicle to a complete stop. Never walk in front of a moving streetcar and only cross the streetcar tracks at the crosswalk when the WALK signal is on.

Don’t Get Stuck! Walk Over the Streetcar Tracks

To safely cross the streetcar tracks, pedestrians should step over the tracks to avoid getting stuck.

Stay Cool…Hot Wires Overhead

Don’t climb the poles or touch the wires around the streetcar tracks. The overhead cables that power the vehicles will be live and “hot”.
