Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Notice of Enforcement Discretion (December 2020)

The PTASP regulation requires transit agencies to incorporate Safety Management System (SMS) policies and procedures as they develop safety plans to manage safety risks. The regulation set July 20, 2020 as the deadline for transit agencies to certify that they have established a compliant agency safety plan. However, this FTA notice alerts transit agencies that they will have until July 20, 2021 to comply with the regulation and updates a previous notice of enforcement issued in April 2020.
