Title: FTA BUS SAFETY & SECURITY PROGRAM


1
  • FTA BUS SAFETY SECURITY PROGRAM
  • TRANSIT SAFETY, SECURITY, and EMERGENCY
    PREPAREDNESS PRESENTATION
  • CalACT Spring Conference 2009
  • Presenter Ream Lazaro

2
  • Overview of the FTA Transit Bus Safety
    Security Program
  • Federal Transit Administration
  • Office of Program Management
  • Office of Safety and Security

3
Program BACKGROUND
  • How did the program evolve?
  • History of Bus Program
  • NTSB Recommendations to US DOT
  • Initial Model Program Development
  • Difficulties with Initial Model Program
  • New Bus Program Initiative

4
Specific NTSB Recommendations to US DOT
  • Develop implement oversight program to assess
    ensure safety of transit bus operations that
    receive Federal funding (H-98-43)
  • Collect accurate, timely, sufficient data so
    thorough assessments can be made relating to
    transit bus safety (H-89-44)
  • Evaluate collected data to identify underlying
    causes of transit bus accidents which lead to
    identification of safety deficiencies at transit
    agencies (H-98-45)
  • Develop, in cooperation w/ APTA, CTAA, AASHTO,
    model comprehensive safety program(s) provide
    to all transit agencies (H-98-46)

5
Initial Model Program Development
  • Memorandum of Understanding for Model Program
    Development (H-98-46) was signed by FTA APTA,
    CTAA, AASHTO
  • A Model Program was drafted which set forth
    core enhanced program elements

6
Difficulties with Initial Model Program
  • Single model developed for all transit agencies
    regardless of size or operating characteristics
    one size did not fit all
  • Core enhanced elements of Model were difficult
    for transit systems to interpret apply to their
    individual operating realities
  • Coordination with involvement of State DOTs in
    addressing Model Program implementation for small
    urban rural transit agencies was limited
  • Model Program never moved out of draft stage

7
New Bus Program Initiative
  • FTA re-birthed re-energized its Transit Bus
    Model Program in 2005
  • Established Working Group of MOU partners
    industry stakeholders to assist in Program
    design/development
  • Renamed program FTA Transit Bus Safety and
    Security Program since no single model will be
    offered

8
New Program Initiative contd
