About this app

NOTICE: Report grade crossing emergencies by calling the phone number posted at the grade crossing or call 911 if the number is missing.

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Rail Crossing Locator helps you locate highway-rail grade crossings and explore detailed information from the USDOT's grade crossing database(s). Users can: locate crossings by USDOT Crossing ID, address or exploring the map; access inventory records submitted by states and railroads; and view accident history. Users can also select from multiple base maps and identify railroad crossings by characteristics. This app empowers the public (including transportation, emergency response, and community and safety organizations) to join the FRA's efforts to further improve grade crossing safety. States and Railroads are responsible for the accuracy of the grade crossing physical and operating characteristics within inventory records.

I use this app to locate railroad crossing for train crew pick ups. This app is quite simple and I'd like to see some feature additions, however THIS APP DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS IT WILL DO. No fuss, no muss! In my experience as a professional driver who has to rely on applications like Rail Crossing Locator, I would rate it a 10/10. That's correct, it rates a perfect score, IMHO.

It is so slow. You should have it linked to Google Maps. What is especially slow is waiting for the crossing icons to generate when you open the app and find your location...then each time you move the map. What can take eons is when the crossing icons finally appear, waiting for the info pop up window to show when you click on one.

The map is ok. My biggest issue is that grade crossings take forever to show, and sometimes not at all. the zoom feature sometimes mess up the crossings or the map. map images take forever to load. this app has a poor interface. When it works, I love it.
