FMCSA Regulations at They Apply to FTA Section 5310/5311 Providers: A Handbook

This digest offers guidance to state and local governments, transit agencies, and others who provide transportation services supported by Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 and 5311 grants. Section 5310 grants provide local operators with funding for public transportation for those who are elderly or have disabilities. Section 5311 grants provide funding to transit providers in rural areas. The digest is intended to help these operators and providers sort out which regulations from both the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the FTA apply to them, as well as help them understand how to address those regulations cost-effectively. Chapter 1 presents a brief history of the FMCSA and provides information about upcoming regulatory changes that may affect FTA grantees. This chapter is intended to provide context for the often confusing and overlapping regulations that follow. Chapter 2 provides the basics of what will be most useful for 5310 and 5311 providers. Each area of regulation is explicitly detailed with associated regulations and their applicability to FTA grantees. Chapter 3 consists of supplementary information.
