The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) will host three webcasts on the Safety and Transit Asset Management (TAM) Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM).

The first webcast will provide an overview of the ANPRM. The second and third webcasts will identify specific topics as they relate to different stakeholder groups. These webcasts will be recorded and posted on the FTA website for subsequent downloading.

On October 3, 2013, FTA published an ANPRM on safety and transit asset management in the Federal Register, http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-10-03/pdf/2013-23921.pdf. These rulemakings are required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), and cover several topics that signal FTA’s commitment to ensuring efforts to keep transit systems in good working order goes hand-in-hand with efforts to keep them safe.
