In a multimodal system with rail and bus, can the Chief Safety Officer oversee safety for BOTH rail and bus?
Yes, the CSO can oversee both rail and bus modes and may be described as such in the Agency Safety Plan, wherever the authorities, accountabilities, and responsibilities are defined. To the extent that the SMS covers each mode operated by a multimodal agency, the CSO is responsible for the operation of that SMS. Thank you for your question!
