Safety and Security Clearinghouse Website

The objective of this project is to ensure new technical assistance and guidance documents are distributed to the transit industry in a timely manner; to provide transit industry with the information needed to identify and solve key safety and security problems. Under this project, the Volpe Center will continue to manage and operate both the Clearinghouse and the Transit Safety and Security Website services for FTA. The Clearinghouse serves as a storehouse of information and an ongoing focal point for published materials currently available on the subject of transit safety and security and related technologies. Material is made available, upon request. The clearinghouse function enables FTA to dialogue with transit safety and security customers, and provides a quick response mechanism for information dissemination. Customer assistance is provided in the form of guidelines, reports, expert advice, referrals to experts, and access to the FTA website. The Transit Safety and Security Website provides rapid access to information that planners, managers, and federal officials need to assess safety and security programs and capital program requirements. The website provides the industry with a central communication point for transit safety and security concerns. The website has been undergoing significant enhancements. Information currently available to website users include: training opportunities, subscription service, calendar of activities, DOT and FTA hearings, regulations, research and statistical reports, and links to other resources.
