State Safety Oversight PTASP Forum

In light of the extraordinary challenges presented by the COVID-19 public health emergency, on December 11, 2020 FTA issued a second Notice of Enforcement Discretion for the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation (49 CFR Part 673). FTA will refrain from taking enforcement action until July 21, 2021 for recipients and subrecipients unable to certify compliance with the PTASP regulation. Please visit FTA’s COVID-19 FAQs page for more information about the Notice.

  1. Funding for small bus ASPs

    In addition to state safety oversight responsibilities for rail agencies, my agency is required to develop ASPs for the small bus agencies in my state. Are there federal grants that we can use to help pay for this?
