Safety & Security Clearinghouse & Website

Under this project, the Volpe Center will continue to manage and operate both the Clearinghouse and the Transit Safety & Security Website services for FTA. The Safety & Security Clearinghouse serves as a storehouse of information and an ongoing focal point for published materials and resources currently available on the subject of transit safety and security and related technologies. Material is made available, upon request, to assist state and local transit agencies to measurably improve the safety and security of transit services. Information on transit safety and security provides the transit industry with the tools needed to identify key safety and security problems. This clearinghouse function enables FTA to dialogue with transit safety and security customers, to better understand customer needs, as well as provide a quick response mechanism for information dissemination. Customer assistance is provided in the form of guidelines, reports, expert advice, referrals to experts when necessary, and access to the FTA website. The Transit Safety & Security Website provides rapid access to information that planners, managers, and federal officials need to assess safety and security programs and capital program requirements. This project supports the ongoing management and operation of the website. The website serves the industry as the central communication point for information on transit safety and security. The website has been undergoing significant enhancements. Information currently available to website users include: training opportunities, a subscription service, calendar of workshops and meetings, DOT and FTA hearings, regulations, research and statistical reports, and links to other resources. The FTA Safety & Security Website is available at Internet URL [].
