Florida Transit Safety Network

The State of Florida has a very comprehensive and nationally recognized transit system safety and security program codified in Rule Chapter 14-90, Florida Administrative Code. The Florida Department of Transportation as the agency responsible for ensuring Florida transit agencies' compliance with the rule has consistently been proactive in providing training, technical assistance and opportunities for stakeholder input related to transit safety and security in the state. But, there is now a critical juncture for transit agencies across the country and Florida's systems. In an effort to prepare Florida's transit agencies for the regulations and guidance that will be issued by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in response to the Moving Ahead for Progress for the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act , the anticipation of modifications that will need to be made to Florida's system safety and security programs due to the transition to FTA's Safety Management System approach to safety programs, and the increased statewide focus on ensuring the safe operation of Florida's public transportation industry, the establishment of a Florida Transit Safety Network (FTSN) is warranted.
