Roadmap to Drafting an ASP for Bus Agencies
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.
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.
