Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan Reminder Letters May 2021

On May 10, 2021, FTA issued letters to State Department of Transportation Secretaries and transit agency CEOs to remind them of the requirements of the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673). The PTASP regulation requires recipients and subrecipients of financial assistance under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (49 U.S.C. Section 5307) and rail transit agencies that are subject to the FTA State Safety Oversight Program to establish a compliant Agency Safety Plan. Applicable FTA recipients must certify that they have met the requirements of the PTASP regulation to be eligible for continued FTA grant assistance after July 20, 2021.
