Lessons Learned from Voluntary Agency Safety Plan Reviews
In light of the extraordinary challenges presented by the COVID-19 public health emergency, on December 11, 2020 FTA issued a second Notice of Enforcement Discretion for the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673). FTA will refrain from taking enforcement action until July 21, 2021 for recipients and subrecipients unable to certify compliance with the PTASP regulation. Please visit FTA’s COVID-19 FAQs page for more information about the Notice.
The PTASP TAC remains available to help you meet PTASP regulation requirements.
FTA’s Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Technical Assistance Center (TAC) provides voluntary reviews of draft Agency Safety Plans (ASPs) to help the transit industry meet the PTASP regulation (49 CFR Part 673). This article shares lessons learned from ASP reviews conducted by the TAC that applicable agencies and States can consider when drafting or reviewing their ASPs.
