Drug and Alcohol Regulatory Guidance and Updates

The objective of this project is to assist transit agencies in achieving a drug- and alcohol-free workforce in the interest of the health and safety of employees and the traveling public. The FTA drug and alcohol regulations, 49 CFR Part 655, August 1, 2002, are designed to assist the transit industry in achieving a drug- and alcohol-free workforce in the interest of the health and safety of employees and the traveling public. To assist transit agencies in implementing these regulations, the agency published "Implementation Guidelines for Drug and Alcohol Regulations in Mass Transit," and a "Best Practices Manual" in 2002. Since the guidelines were originally published in 1994, there have been numerous amendments, interpretations, and clarifications to the drug and alcohol testing procedures and program requirements. To ensure that transit personnel are aware of all such changes, the Office of Safety and Security publishes the quarterly FTA Drug and Alcohol Updates. This project provides for the continued issuance of these Updates as well as for an updated guidelines manual. More than 6,000 organizations receive the updates.
