Most Transit Agencies Meet Safety Plan Deadline

The Federal Transit Administration said this week that more than 700 transit agencies have certified safety plans in place.

The plans were created in response to a 2018 FTA directive that safety plans be completed and certified by July 20, 2021. 

The rule requires agencies that receive the FTA’s urbanized area formula grants to set safety performance targets in a safety plan that is reviewed and certified every year.

An agency that fails to file a compliant plan by the deadline would have been ineligible for further FTA grants.

FTA officials said in a news release that because no two transit systems are alike, no two safety plans are alike, resulting in more than 700 different plans across the country.
