The following tools are available throughout this website.
- Charter Registration Tool
Supports FTA's effort to electronically register private charter operators so that FTA grant recipients can notify those companies when the grant recipient receives a request for charter service. This information is available to individuals and groups in the general public who wish to find private charter operators in their area. FTA has found that grant recipients are by-passing private charter operators, which is a violation of FTA's regulations. In addition, Qualified Human Service Operators (QHSOs) may register with grant recipients that they are permitted to directly request service from. The general public can submit registrations through the tool. Approved submissions are posted for public view. http://ftawebprod.fta.dot.gov/CharterRegistration/(S(kl3cju45icaf1krl0q3gr0j3))/Default.aspx

The general public can submit registrations through the tool. New FAQs may be developed based on these questions and subsequent answers.

The Nationís primary source for information and statistics on the transit systems of the United States. Recipients or beneficiaries of grants from FTA under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (§5307) or Other than Urbanized Area (Rural) Formula Program (§5311) are required by statute to submit data to the NTD. Over 660 transit providers in urbanized areas currently report to the NTD through the Internet-based reporting system. Each year, NTD performance data are used to apportion over $5 billion of FTA funds to transit agencies in urbanized areas (UZAs). Annual NTD reports are submitted to Congress summarizing transit service and safety data. FTA shares the data collected each report year and produces several publications. http://www.ntdprogram.gov/ntdprogram/
