Understanding the Agency Safety Plan Review, Approval, and Certification Process
The Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673) establishes requirements for Agency Safety Plans (ASP), including the requirements for review, approval, and certification. The information provided in this article can support transit agencies and State Departments of Transportation as they prepare for each review, approval, and certification step ahead of the compliance deadline.
Please note, due to the extraordinary challenges posed by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), FTA has issued a Notice of Enforcement Discretion, effectively extending the compliance deadline to December 31, 2020. For more information, see FTA’s COVID-19 FAQs page.
