National Transit Safety Research and Assistance Center

The National Center for Transit Research will establish a National Transit Safety Research and Assistance Center. The Center will employ a number of methods to successfully provide resources to public transportation providers, local and state governments, the private sector, and other transit stakeholders to improve public transportation safety in the United States. This Center will be a resource for public transportation agencies from the smallest to the largest, in operating environments from the most rural to those operating in our nation's largest cities. The focus areas will include, but not be limited to operational and vehicle related safety topics, human factors, and substance abuse management. Technical assistance and training aspects will be structured to provide ample support to transit agencies that are improving or modifying their safety programs to comply with the transit safety regulations included in Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21).
