1 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona 5310 System Safety & Funding Study Objectives 1.Identify agencies receiving only 5310 program funding 2.Identify the current contracts or agreements used to pass along safety requirements 3.Recommend a set of baseline safety requirements

2 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Methodology CTC Survey

3 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Methodology Identifying 5310 sub-recipients that only receive 5310 program funding and do not receive additional federal or FDOT state program funding Contacted District Representatives with 5310 agency list and requested they identify the agencies only receiving 5310 program funds from FDOT Contacted CTCs with 5310 list and requested they identify 5310 agencies receiving trip reimbursements (CTD funding) to eliminate those agencies from the master list

4 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Results of Survey Research study identified 112 agencies that were 5310-only sub recipients

5 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona CTC Agreements & Coordination Contracts Identified regulations stated in 5310 grant application manual Requested CTCs (with identified 5310-only agencies) provide the contract or agreement they use to pass requirements along to the 5310 agencies CTD Standard Coordination Contracts Customized Coordination Agreements

6 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Results of Contracts & Agreements

7 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Assessing Regulations and Requirements Primary regulations identified to pass requirements on to 5310 sub recipients: Chapter 41-2, FAC “Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged” Chapter 14-90, FAC“Equipment and Operational Safety Standards for Bus Transit Systems” Section , F.S. “Transit Safety Standards; Inspections and System Safety Reviews” Chapter , F.S. “Transportation of School Children on School Buses” Additional regulations examined: Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 Medicaid Agreements SSPP regulations Various local regulations provided

8 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona “Transit operator” is defined as “transportation service that is purchased or funded by local government, state or federal transportation disadvantaged funds” 5310-only agencies do not provide services that are funded by transportation disadvantaged funds Rule 41-2, FAC

9 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Rule 14-90, FAC “Bus system” as defined in excludes agencies that use non-public sector vehicles This excludes 5310-only agencies as they only provide service to their private clients and are considered non-public sector vehicles

10 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Conclusion of Assessment The laws and rules identified in this study were not intended to regulate the types of agencies that do not provide transportation services to the general public; Currently there are no current laws, administrative rules or other regulations that provide safety standards for the 5310-only agencies

11 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Establishing Baseline Safety Requirements Agencies should develop SSPP’s and SPP’s that include minimum safety standards Agencies should be required to establish and maintain a drug-free workplace policy according to Section , F.S. Agencies should be required to perform and document a pre-operational bus inspection report according to Rule Agencies should develop a maintenance plan that outlines the agency’s basic maintenance policies and procedures for maintaining the vehicles

12 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Establishing Baseline Safety Requirements Agencies should be required to investigate events involving the vehicles and resulting in fatality, injury or property damage and the development of necessary reports, corrective action plans and other documentation Agencies should be required to ensure drivers licenses are active at all times while operating vehicles Agencies should require that drivers not be permitted to drive more than 12 hours in a 24 hour period; and drivers are not permitted to be on duty more than 72 hours in any period of 7 consecutive days

13 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Establishing Baseline Safety Requirements Agencies should be required to ensure that all buses operated undergo a safety inspection at least annually in accordance with bus inspection procedures set forth in Rule Agencies should be required to undergo a safety review and inspection by FDOT to ascertain compliance with the baseline requirements set forth

14 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Recommendations A standardized template be developed and utilized between FDOT District Representatives and the 5310-only recipients; Current CTD Standard Coordination Agreement to only be used between CTCs and their trip subcontractors. This contract template will include the baseline safety requirements recommended in the study FDOT District representatives be responsible for conducting the safety review and inspections for the 5310-only agencies. Currently CTCs and Districts are providing this service. Standard combined SSPP & SPP template be created to include minimum safety requirements

15 2013 Florida TD Conference -- Daytona Minimum Safety Requirements for SSPP & SPP Vehicle safety policies and responsibilities established by the agency Vehicle equipment information and standards, including procurement criteria Operational standards and procedures Basic maintenance plan that includes agency’s vehicle maintenance policies and procedures Investigations of events as described under Rule (5) Equipment and standards for transporting wheelchairs Security policies and objectives, including agency roles and responsibilities in emergency management processes
