Roadmap to Drafting an ASP for Bus 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.

 

The Roadmap to Drafting an ASP for Bus Agencies course prepares bus agencies and State Departments of Transportation to develop an Agency Safety Plan (ASP) that meets the needs of their agencies and that is compliant with 49 C.F.R. Part 673. The course shares information on the ASP requirements and potential resources necessary for the development of an ASP.

This job aid supports the Roadmap to Drafting an ASP for Bus Agencies eLearning course. It will help you collect information and make the necessary decisions for drafting a Part 673-compliant ASP that works for your agency. The job aid works in concert with the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA):

  • Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Template for Bus Transit (Bus Template): This optional template is for States and operators of public transportation systems that are required to draft a Safety Plan in accordance with 49 C.F.R. Part 673
  • Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Template for Bus Transit Reference Guide: The guide helps complete each section of the optional Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Template for Bus Transit. It references regulatory requirements and provides additional information and examples for illustration.
