In 2013 and 2014, TRA assisted FDOT District 5 personnel in overseeing the Central Florida Rail Corridor (CFRC) commuter rail system as it developed its first ever System Safety Program Plan, as required under 14-15.017 F.A.C. and 341.061 F.S. TRA subject matter experts used the FDOT Public Transit Office Standards Manual 725-030-014 as a basis for auditing and assessing the SSPP.
TRA also requested and reviewed related documents associated with rules, procedures, and policies for operations, maintenance, and investigation activities at SunRail. TRA issued findings and reviewed SunRail’s corrective measures, culminating in the approval of the SSPP prior to the start of revenue service.
