Federal Railroad Administration's Automated Track Inspection Program ATIP
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program (ATIP) helps America's railroads improve railroad quality and safety under statutes mandated by Congress. ATIP cars conduct operational surveys of the United States rail transportation network determining railroad compliance with Federal Track Safety Standards (FTSS). The ATIP data is used to assess the effectiveness of railroads' track maintenance and inspection processes, provides data to assess track safety trends, and provides data to railroads to assist in making repairs and improving safety and maintenance quality.
