PTASP Reminder Letter: Reminder on Compliance Date for Safety Committee Approval of Updated Agency Safety Plan

This PTASP Reminder Letter provides a reminder to public transportation agencies that receive Section 5307 funding and serve urbanized areas with a population of 200,000 or more (large urbanized areas) of the December 31, 2022, compliance date for Safety Committee review and approval of their updated Agency Safety Plan (ASP). The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law requires that applicable agencies establish a Safety Committee that must have an equal number of frontline employee representatives and management representatives, and that the Safety Committee approve the agency’s ASP and any updates to the ASP. As stated in the February 2022 Dear Colleague Letter, if a transit agency is not yet compliant with the new PTASP requirements, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) expects the Safety Committee to approve an update to the agency’s ASP, incorporating applicable PTASP requirements in Section 5329(d), by December 31, 2022.
