Agency Safety Plan Review for Rail Transit Agencies

In light of the extraordinary operational challenges presented by the COVID-19 public health emergency, FTA issued a Notice of Enforcement Discretion effectively extending the PTASP compliance deadline from July 20, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Please visit FTA’s COVID-19 FAQs page for more information about the Notice.

The PTASP TAC is available to help you meet PTASP regulation requirements.


FTA offers voluntary reviews of draft Agency Safety Plans (ASPs) to help the transit industry meet PTASP regulation requirements at 49 CFR Part 673. You can request this direct, one-on-one assistance through the new Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

Wherever you are in the process, the PTASP TAC’s team of specialists is available to support you in developing an ASP that meets Part 673 requirements.
