Describing the Modes of Transit
Should NTD terms be used to describe the Modes of Service in the following sections: Safety Performance Targets ; Transit Agency Information? Or is Paratransit and Fixed Bus acceptable like in the sample plan? Might be simple to many but I need clarification, help?
The PTASP regulation does not prescribe how you categorize your modes within your ASP or for establishing safety performance targets. FTA defers to your transit agency on categorizing its modes to best suit its needs. You may find FTA’s Safety Performance Targets Guide (https://bit.ly/2JLDYyf) useful. It includes examples that use broad modal categories, such as “rail transit,” “bus transit,” and “ADA/Paratransit.”
