July 19, 2019 marks one year from the compliance deadline for the Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan (PTASP) regulation. The PTASP regulation implements a risk-based Safety Management System approach and requires recipients or subrecipients of financial assistance under the Urbanized Area Formula Program (49 U.S.C. Section 5307) and rail transit agencies to have a safety plan in place no later than July 20, 2020.
