Nearly 25 individuals were in attendance from Regional Public Transportation, Appaloosa Express, Treasure Valley Transit, Boise State University Transportation & Parking, Kuna Senior Center, and Valley Ride staff from both the Boise and Nampa locations, and ITD attended the FTA Bus Safety & Security Seminar this week.

Ream Lazaro, of Lazaro & Noel, spent the day discussing the basics of safety and security and the new resources that FTA has provided on their Bus Safety & Security website that will help transit providers, small and large, establish the new requirements under MAP-21.

Among those requirements are the designation of a Safety and Security staff person within the agency, as well as, the creation and implementation of a Safety & Security Plan.
