Transit COVID-19 Response Program Information Collection

Transit agencies and States will no longer be required to report data to the Transit COVID-19 Response Program. The forms due on September 15, 2022 were the last set of required recurring response forms. No recurring forms will be generated on October 1, 2022. While reporting is no longer required, you will still be able to access your previously submitted Baseline and Recurring forms for information purposes and to update any previous responses as needed.

Overview

FTA uses an online application to collect information from FTA recipients and subrecipients on the impacts of COVID-19.  FTA will use this data to inform FTA actions in support of the transit industry’s COVID-19 response and recovery efforts and implementation of the Federal mask requirement for public transportation.  

All agencies that currently provide transit service and submit reports to the National Transit Database (NTD) as urban reporters or tribal transit agencies will report directly to the application. State recipients of Section 5311 grants will report to the application on behalf of their applicable subrecipients.

To reduce the burden on reporters, the application leverages FTA’s existing Transit Integrated Appian Development Platform, the platform that hosts the NTD. This application captures transit workforce counts, service impacts, and transit worker positives, fatalities and recoveries.
  
Applicable users may access the COVID-19 online application on the Transit Integrated Appian Platform using their existing login credentials. Users will submit two forms for their agency: a Baseline Form and a Recurring Form.
