|APTA Issues New Rail Standards|
APTA’s Technical Services and Program Management teams recently issued the following new standards for rail:
* APTA-RT-OP-S-019-14 Rail Transit Standard for Operations Supervisors Program Requirements: establishes the duties and responsibilities of rail operating supervisors or supervisory programs; and
* APTA-RT-OP-S-020-14 Rail Transit Standard for Track Allocation Program Requirements: establishes a program to formalize the core requirements of allocating access to the track and guideway.
In addition, APTA has released several standards documents for public comment. The documents cover a range of topics, from rail emergency management, training for rail operating employees, station procedures, passenger car brake disc inspection and maintenance, and cyber security to customer relations and identifying suspicious behavior in public transit.
To comment and review, click here or contact Saahir Brewington by April 30.
Standards development at APTA is supported by its members, FTA, the Transportation Security Administration, and other organizations.
