RTA and SSOA PTASP Review Checklist
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is providing the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Checklist for Rail Transit Agencies (RTAs) and State Safety Oversight Agencies (SSOAs) to assist with the development of the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (ASP) for rail transit modes. Use of this checklist is voluntary.
The checklist is intended for use by RTAs that are required to draft an ASP in accordance with 49 CFR. Part 673, Public Transportation Agency Safety Plans (Part 673) and for SSOAs that must review and approve the ASP per 49 CFR Part 674, State Safety Oversight (Part 674).
The full text of Part 673 is available at http://www.transit.dot.gov/PTASP and Part 674 is available at https://www.transit.dot.gov/state-safety-oversight.
This version is a fillable PDF. If you would like an editable Microsoft Word version, please contact the Technical Assistance Center at PTASP-TAC@dot.gov.
Version 3 of this checklist includes the current Bipartisan Infrastructure Law PTASP requirements at 49 U.S.C § 5329(d). For information on Bipartisan Infrastructure Law safety requirements, see FTA’s web page or email FTA-IIJA@dot.gov.
