Rule/Notice/NOFO:  FTA: New Requirements for Public Transportation Agency Safety Plans

Federal Register/Notice: federalregister.gov

Type of Requirement: NPRM

Description:  FTA is proposing new requirements for Public Transportation Agency Safety Plans that include revised requirements for Agency Safety Plans (ASP), safety committees, cooperation with frontline transit worker representatives in the development of ASPs, safety risk reduction programs, safety performance targets, de-escalation training for certain transit workers, and addressing infectious diseases through the Safety Management System process. FTA also proposes revisions to the regulation to coordinate and align with other FTA programs and safety rulemakings.

How is it enforced by FTA, DOT, Direct grant requirement, triennial review or other?  FTA enforces its PTSAP program through its triennial review program.

Is there a cost or time impact to grantees (best estimate):  This proposal could require additional training for transit employees and additional paperwork requirements.
