ABSTRACT: The United States Department of Transportation’s (US DOT) John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe Center), under the direction of the US DOT Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Office of Research and Development (R&D), conducted an independent internal evaluation of the FRA-sponsored Trespass Prevention Research Study (TPRS). The Volpe Center conducted the TPRS from 2009-2013 to develop and demonstrate trespass prevention and mitigation best practices. The study focused on a 7-mile stretch of South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) Right-of-Way (ROW) on which SFRTA, CSX, and Amtrak trains operate, and 5 miles of Florida East Coast Railway Company (FEC) ROW in the City of West Palm Beach, Florida.
