FTA seeks nominations for transit safety committee

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is seeking nominations for up to eight individuals to serve as members on the Transit Advisory Committee for Safety (TRACS).

Nominees should be knowledgeable about trends and issues related to rail and bus transit safety, and will be evaluated on factors including leadership and organization skills, geographic representation, staff diversity and the overall balance of industry representation, FTA officials said in a news brief.

Appointments are for two-year terms, and applications must be submitted by Aug. 31.

Chartered in 2009, TRACS provides information, advice and recommendations to the U.S. secretary of transportation and the FTA administrator in response to tasks assigned.
