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.

The Apple version of the app is five stars due to the ability to get directions to the crossing through the app. I constantly use the locator app on my company phone (iphone). The Andriod version disappointingly doesn't the ability to open direction in another app (Google maps, wazes, etc). Also, it would be nice to have a filter for crossings with active warning devices versus passive warning devices

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.

This use to be a good app. But now is is completely unreliable. It freezes up all the time, never shows crossing information such as inventory number, and tends to crash outright. I think the issue is with ArcGIS by Esri. We use them for other mapping needs and that doesn't work as well. The FRA needs to find a new vendor and dump Esri and their broken ArcGIS system. Until then, don't waist your time with this App
