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.
