The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in collaboration with members from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ (AASHTO) Multi-State Technical Assistance Program (MTAP), is working with the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) to promote a bus transit safety management practices guide and model program to aid states and transit systems in the development of a system safety program and related implementing procedures.

The purpose of this project is to gather industry “best practices” for developing model state safety programs and state legislation necessary for the development of improved transit bus safety standards and practices.

The guide will serve as a useful resource for state departments of transportation and transit systems of any size in developing bus safety plans. The sample plans, contacts, reference links, and checklists available at this site are adaptable for systems of any size but are particularly suitable for small urban and rural (section 5311) recipients.

The Transit Bus Safety Resource Guide has been developed in response to the Model Transit Bus Safety and Security Program under development by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). In cooperation with the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and other representatives from the transit bus industry, this website will attempt to assist in the promotion of a Transit Bus Safety and Security Program.
The Transit Bus Safety and Security Program contains two general categories of program elements:
