As an extension of APTA’s successful peer review program, and to broaden its efforts to aid members in their development and enhancement of system safety management programs, APTA offers a new Bus Safety Program Assessment peer review
to complement its existing Bus Safety Management Program (BSMP) services.
The main purpose of the program is to provide properties with a focused, onsite review resulting in a foundational assessment of their current safety program, aimed at establishing a framework from which they can meet the Federal Transit Administration’s MAP-21 public transit agency safety plan regulations.
Benefits of participation include:
Establishment of a customized framework for best preparing for MAP-21 requirements,
Identification of any current gaps in agency safety programs,
Opportunities to enhance existing safety efforts through information sharing with peers and benchmarking best practices,
Ongoing support of APTA safety management resources and staff, and
Industry-backed guidance for moving beyond regulatory compliance to ensure the long term viability of the agency’s safety programs by initiating a safety management systems approach which follows APTA’s model.
