FTA Announces 100 Percent of Applicable Transit Agencies and States Now Have Public Transportation Agency Safety Plans

Published on: August 16, 2021

FTA today announced more than 700 transit agencies around the United States have certified that they now have safety plans to help keep riders and employees safe on their transit systems. The safety plans were required to be completed by July 20th, following a Federal Transit Administration (FTA) rule issued in 2018.

The Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) Final Rule requires all agencies that receive FTA’s Urbanized Area Formula Grants to set safety performance targets in a Safety Plan that is reviewed and certified every year. Any agency that failed to file a compliant Safety Plan by the deadline would have been ineligible for further grants from FTA.

FTA supported transit agencies and States by providing technical assistance and resources, including webinars, workshops, and voluntary reviews of draft Agency Safety Plans. To learn more, visit:
