On July 25th, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced the latest round of states to receive certifications for their State Safety Oversight (SSO) Programs. Each state that oversees a defined rail transit system must apply for and receive certification under MAP-21 and 49 CFR §674. With these newest additions to the roster, TRA now has nine SSO clients who have achieved certification.
Working with our partner and prime contractor CASE, TRA recently completed two-volume Transit Cooperative Research Project Research Report 193, “Tools and Strategies for Eliminating Assaults Against Transit Operators.”
TRA recently began an exciting project wherein we’re reviewing incident investigation procedures and recent investigation reports for a U.S. commuter rail agency. The commuter rail operator seeks to improve incident investigation processes, as well as the safety-related interaction between departments.
