FTA Names New Members to Re-established Safety Advisory Committee

FTA has re-established the Transit Advisory Committee for Safety (TRACS) through a new charter. TRACS is a Federal Advisory Committee that provides transit safety information, advice and recommendations to the U.S. Secretary of Transportation and FTA Administrator.

Under the new charter, TRACS will provide research and analysis to develop recommendations on key safety topics including the review of emerging technologies and safety innovations to implement into the public transportation sector.

FTA has named 15 members to serve on TRACS for the next two years. These members represent a diverse cross section of the transit industry, including large and small bus and rail operators, State Safety Oversight Agencies, labor unions and others.

For more information, please view the Federal Register Notice and the FTA TRACS website.
