“Be Rail Wise!” was a slogan that accompanied the merger of the LA County Transportation Commission (LACTC) and the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD) to educate citizens on railway safety. The “Be Rail Wise!” Travel Club aimed at teaching children how to be cautious around construction sites as well as train tracks. Travis the Owl was used for this initiative to appeal to children and as a symbol that carries the message of safety to those communities that are affected by the railway program. Travis the Owl was featured in a two-part video to promote the safety campaign:
