"The Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration's top priority is to 'promote the public health and safety by working toward the elimination of transportation-related deaths, injuries, and property damage.' In support of this objective, the Federal Transit Administration developed its Safely Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2000. This Plan defined goals and activities in six key areas to maintain continuous improvement of the excellent safety performance of the transit industry. This brochure highlights FTA safety accomplishments in the six key areas in FY 2000 and defines our safety activities for FY 2001." The six key areas include statistical data, human factors, design standards, the revision of State Safety Oversight Rule, Section 49 CFR Part 659, active work with the industry to improve busy safety, and safety promotion.
