FTA Letter to State DOT Secretaries and Transit Agencies: PTASP Reminder Letter February 2020
On February 21, 2020, FTA published a letter to State DOT Secretaries and transit agencies to remind them of their obligation under the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673). The PTASP regulation implements a proactive, risk-based approach to managing transit safety and requires recipients and subrecipients of financial assistance under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (49 U.S.C. Section 5307) and rail transit agencies that are subject to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) State Safety Oversight Program to have an Agency Safety Plan in place no later than July 20, 2020. We are less than six months from the compliance deadline.
