Rule/Notice/NOFO: FTA, Transit Worker Hours of Service and Fatigue Risk Management
Federal Register/Notice: govinfo.gov
Type of Requirement: ANPRM
Description: FTA is considering proposing minimum safety standards to provide protections for transit workers to obtain adequate rest thereby reducing the risk of fatigue-related safety incidents. FTA seeks public input in two areas: hours of service; and fatigue risk management programs. FTA seeks information to understand better current industry practices, priorities, requirements, and the costs and benefits.
How is it enforced by FTA, DOT, Direct grant requirement, triennial review or other? FTA enforces this program through its triennial review program.
Is there a cost or time impact to grantees (best estimate): TBD
