The Confidential Close Call System (C3RS) is a research project
intended to improve railroad safety by studying near miss incidents, determining
root causes for unsafe conditions, and developing corrective actions and
preventative measures. The project, sponsored by the Federal Railroad
Administration and implemented by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS),
operates under agreements with Union Pacific Railroad (UP), Canadian Pacific
Railway (CP), and New Jersey Transit (NJT) to allow employees of participating
railroads to voluntarily report close call events without threat of disciplinary
*Attention: As of December 1, 2014, New Jersey Transit employees report close calls to NASA at www.c3rs.arc.nasa.gov
