Dear Transit Colleague:

 

FTA issued a Federal Register publication on February 25, 2008 concerning the National Transit Database (NTD) Amendments to Safety & Security Reporting Manual.  This is a notice of availability of the final 2008 National Transit Database Safety & Security Reporting Manual.  FTA requires those transit agencies reporting to the NTD from urbanized areas to provide reports within 30 days of a major safety or security incident, and to provide a monthly report on minor safety and security incidents.  The 2008 NTD Safety & Security Reporting Manual details the specific requirements and guidelines for safety and security reporting.  On November 21, 2007, FTA published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 65636) inviting comments on proposed changes to the 2008 NTD Safety & Security Reporting Manual.  This notice provides responses to those comments, and announces the availability of the 2008 NTD Safety & Security Reporting Manual on the NTD Web site at http://www.ntdprogram.gov/.

 

The publication is included as an attachment to this email or it can be retrieved at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-3517.pdf .  You may also access this notice by going to the FTA Website at http://www.fta.dot.gov/ and click on the link to Legislation, Regulations & Guidance.
