DOT/FTA RIN: 2132-AB20 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: +National and Public Transportation Safety Plans (MAP-21) and Transit Asset Management 
Abstract: This is a joint ANPRM for certain requirments of the Public Transportation Safety Program and the of the National Tranist Asset Management System. SAFETY This rule, mandated by MAP-21, will create and implement a National Public Transportation Safety Plan that will include: (1) safety performance criteria for all modes of public transportation; (2) the definition of State of Good Repair established under separate rulemaking; (3) minimum safety performance standards for public transportation vehicles used in revenue operations that do not apply to vehicles regulated by another Federal agency; and (4) a public transportation safety certification training program. This rule will also establish requirements for each 5307 and 5311 recipient in developing and implementing individual agency safety plans. This rule will ultimately be broken into three separate rulemakings for the National Plan and the Agency Plans, and the training certification program. TRANSIT ASSET MANAGEMENT See 2132-AB07 
Agency: Department of Transportation(DOT)  Priority: Other Significant 
RIN Status: Previously published in the Unified Agenda Agenda Stage of Rulemaking: Prerule Stage 
Major: No  Unfunded Mandates: No 
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined     (To search for a specific CFR, visit the Code of Federal Regulations.)
Legal Authority: 49 USC 5326 and 5329   
Legal Deadline:  None

Statement of Need: The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act ("MAP-21," effective Oct. 1, 2012) placed substantial new obligations upon the Department, FTA, and its recipients. Among those changes was a new Federal public transportation safety program for the DOT, public transportation agency safety plans by local transit agencies, and the creation of transit asset management systems and plans at the national and local levels.

Summary of the Legal Basis: Title 49 US Code, sections 5326 (Transit Asset Management) and 5329 (Safety).

Alternatives: N/A

Anticipated Costs and Benefits: The costs and benefits of these rulemakings are unknown at this time, as the prospective shape and direction of the regulatory obligations are undetermined. FTA will estimate the costs and benefits of these rulemakings at the notice of proposed rulemaking stage.

Risks: Regulated parties could raise the traditional concerns about unfunded Federal mandates and lack of transparency. But many of the safety costs will be covered by or eligible for Federal grants, and by issuing an ANPRM prior to a proposed rule, FTA hopes to enlist the involvement of affected stakeholders prior to publication of the NPRM.
