This paper investigates the impacts of train commuters’ access modes on road safety at a networkwide level, using a case study in Victoria, Australia. Crash and census data were aggregated at the Statistical Area Level 1 (SA1) for the analysis. Results of negative binomial regression models illustrate positive effects of using train for commuting, either with walking or car access modes, on reducing both total crashes and severe crashes. The safety effects of commuting by train with the cycling access mode appear to be positive, which however were not statistically significant.
