REMINDER: Safety Committee Requirement Compliance Date – July 31, 2022

Transit agencies that receive Section 5307 funding and serve a large urbanized area have until Sunday, July 31, 2022 to establish a Safety Committee as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law changes to the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) requirements.  This compliance date will not be extended. The Safety Committee must have an equal number of frontline employee representatives and management representatives.  In addition, FTA expects the Safety Committee to approve an update to the agency’s Agency Safety Plan, incorporating the applicable PTASP requirements by December 31, 2022.  For more information on the requirements, please refer to the Dear Colleague Letter or the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Frequently Asked Questions webpage.

All FTA Bipartisan Infrastructure Law updates are available on www.transit.dot.gov/BIL.  For questions about Bipartisan Infrastructure Law requirements, please email FTA-IIJA@dot.gov
