Understanding PTASP Safety Training and Communication Requirements

FTA’s Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673) includes requirements for safety promotion, defined in §673.5 as “a combination of training and communication of safety information,” which is a key component of each transit agency’s Safety Management System (SMS). The information provided in this article can assist transit agencies and States developing Agency Safety Plans on behalf of small public transportation providers in their jurisdiction as they develop programs and processes to meet these requirements by the compliance deadline.
