This standard provides rail transit systems with the baseline requirements for fatigue management programs (FMPs) in order to mitigate the impacts of fatigue on their operations and thereby improve the quality and safety of rail service. It also includes recommendations regarding the usage of fatigue risk management systems. APTA recognizes that each RTS has unique design and operating characteristics and that each RTS will therefore have different titles and roles that its program would need to focus on.
