REGION 8 Bulletin No: 12-04 (PDF).

The Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Office of Safety and Security, in partnership with FTA Region VIII conducted a Webinar on July 31st. The URL for a recording of the Webinar is: https://connectdot.connectsolutions.com/p1ubmwup9zd/

The purpose of the webinar was to provide an overview of a new FTA resource document titled “Response and Recovery for Declared Emergencies and Disasters: A Resource Document for Transit Agencies.” www.fta.dot.gov/documents/FTA_Response_Recovery_Declared_Emergencies_Disasters.pdf. This document addresses response and recovery actions that transit agencies can take, including securing funding and reimbursement for restoring services following a declared emergency or disaster. It is written specifically for transit agencies that are either affected by a declared emergency or disaster or that offer services to an affected community or region. It applies to all modes of transit and to all types of declared emergencies and disasters.

If you have any questions regarding this information, you may contact David Beckhouse at 720-963-3327 or david.beckhouse@dot.gov.

 

Sincerely,

Linda M. Gehrke
Regional Administrator
