FTA issues proposed rule for public transit safety certification training

Agency seeks to adopt the current interim provisions

Posted December 4, 2015

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding the Public Transportation Safety Certification Training Program in the Federal Register on December 3. FTA proposes to adopt the current interim safety certification training provisions as the initial regulatory training requirements for public transportation industry personnel responsible for safety oversight of public transportation systems. The agency is seeking public comments on the NPRM.

According to the FTA, the NPRM:

  • Defines to whom the training requirements apply,
  • Describes recordkeeping requirements,
  • Provides administrative provisions, and
  • Offers compliance requirements.

Comments must be received by February 1, 2016. FTA will accept late-filed comments to the extent practicable. Comments can be submitted online using the Federal eRulemaking portal at
