"On October 18, 2004, the President signed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act of 2005. The 2005 appropriation is a firm commitment from the Administration and Congress to continuing the work necessary to enhance the security of the United States of America against the threat posed by terrorism. The DHS Appropriations Act of 2005 provides $10 million for an intercity bus security grant program. This program will improve security for operators and passengers by providing security enhancements and training for service providers and terminal facilities. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 Intercity Bus Security Grant Program reflects the intent of Congress and the Administration to create a sustainable effort for the protection of critical infrastructure from terrorism, especially explosives and non-conventional threats that would cause major loss of life and severe disruption. The Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) has designed this program in coordination with federal partner agencies and industry, including the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) within DHS, the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) within the Department of Transportation, owners and operators of the Nation's inter-city buses, and the American Bus Association (ABA). The FY 2005 Intercity Bus Security Grant Program (IBSGP) focuses on passenger and baggage screening programs and facility security enhancements for fixed route, intercity bus services."
