  • Date: 04/15/2024
  • The Federal Transit Administration issued a final rule last week updating the agency’s safety plans for transit workers and passengers.
  • The first major update to the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plans regulation applies to more than 700 transit agencies on federally supported transit systems. It addresses requirements set out in the 2021 infrastructure law to improve safety management system procedures, increase transit worker involvement in developing safety plans and provide de-escalation training.
  • The FTA also published an update to the National Public Transportation Safety Plan, which sets 22 performance measures to improve safety, address bus collisions and prevent assaults on transit workers. The plan applies to all transit providers subject to the PTASP regulation.
