Work Groups

The TRACS members typically spend time in a work group setting to research and evaluate topics related to transit safety and develop recommendations that address task statements issued by the FTA Administrator. Reports addressing the task statements are presented to the full TRACS committee before they are considered final. Information and minutes from the meetings at which the taskings are discussed are provided as they become available. Meetings are open to the public for observation purposes only. Opportunity for public comment is prior to the end of each meeting.

For more information about TRACS and its activities, please contact Bridget Zamperini, FTA Office of Transit Safety and Oversight at 202-366-0306 or TRACS@DOT.GOV
