FTA offers new transit safety, crime prevention resources


The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced yesterday it’s launching the Enhanced Transit Safety and Crime Prevention Initiative to provide information and resources to help transit agencies address and prevent crime on their systems and protect transit workers and riders.

FTA resources can be used by transit agencies to prevent and address crime, as well as for overtime pay for enhanced security personnel presence, mental health and crisis intervention specialists.

Transit worker and rider safety is a top priority for the President Biden’s administration and the U.S. Department of Transportation, FTA officials said in a press release.
