Bus Testing; Phase-In of Brake Performance and Emissions Testing, and Program Updates
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
This notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) provides interested parties with the opportunity to comment on the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA's) proposed changes to its Bus Testing Regulation. The NPRM incorporates tests for brake performance and emissions into FTA's Bus Testing Program to comply with the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Equitable Transportation Efficiency Act: a Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). To improve the FTA Bus Testing Program, FTA is also proposing several updates that will enhance the Program's value and respond to changes in the transit bus industry. FTA seeks comments on the proposals in this notice.
