Event description

Description

FTA will be offering two 1-day Public Transit Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) workshops for transit operators at the MLK Federal Building on Tuesday, July 23 and Wednesday, July 24, 2019.

The workshop is an opportunity for your agency to learn more from FTA about the PTASP rule and requirements, Safety Management Systems or SMS concepts and implementation strategies, next steps to develop your agency safety plan, and to engage with your peers. Multimodal operators may attend, but the workshop will focus primarily on the needs of bus transit agencies, given that the requirement to develop a safety plan is new for bus transit agencies.

The workshops are open to the staff and contractors of recipients or sub-recipients of Urbanized Area Formula Grant Program funds who are responsible for developing or implementing an agency safety plan, and State DOT staff that are responsible for drafting agency safety plans for the small public transportation provides within their States.

Registration is required. Registration is open on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be opened to wait-listed attendees, as space permits. FTA may limit the number of attendees per agency.

Please email PTASP_QA@dot.gov with questions or to request to add someone to the waitlist. The hotel room block will be available until Monday, July 1, 2019.
