FTA Releases Emergency Response Guide for Bus Transit

FTA has released Effective Practices in Bus Transit Safety: Emergency Responsea new guide that compiles voluntary recommendations from FTA’s Bus Safety Program to bus transit agencies to improve their responses during and after emergencies. The guide also provides examples of effective emergency response practices that transit agencies can adopt to implement the recommendations.

The guide is the first in a series of voluntary bus safety guides for the industry based on FTA’s experience conducting voluntary onsite bus safety reviews. Since 2007, FTA has completed more than 60 reviews at transit agencies of varying sizes across the country.
