Safety & Security Clearinghouse

This project supports the Safety and Security Clearinghouse which 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. The material is made available upon request to assist state and local transit agencies to improve the safety of transit services. The clearinghouse function provides FTA with a means for hands on contact with transit safety and security customers. It enables FTA to better understand customer needs and provides a quick response mechanism for information dissemination. Customer assistance is provided in the form of guidelines, technical publications, final research reports, and expert advice through referrals to other industry experts, simulation models, and state of the art information resources.
