DRUG PROGRAMS CONTINUE

The results of a survey conducted by the American Public Transit Association in March reveals that although the implementation of anti-drug programs for transit agencies as mandated by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) as a condition for federal funding was rescinded by the courts, nearly 80 percent of the 240 respondents to the survey conduct some type of drug and or alcohol testing. Many of these agencies had programs in place prior to the UMTA December 21, 1989 implementation deadline. Those who have no programs were exempted because of size or had received waivers from UMTA. Over 86 percent of those with programs include an employee assistance program.
