Federal Transit Administration

49 CFR Part 604

 

Charter Service; Address Change

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This technical amendment revises an address related to the 
agency's charter bus requirements. The amendment is required because 
the organization has moved.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 25, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rita Daguillard, Attorney Advisor, 
Office of the Chief Counsel, 202-366-1936.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 49 CFR part 604 of the Federal Transit 
Administration's (FTA) regulations govern charter service that 
recipients of FTA funding may provide using FTA funded equipment or 
facilities. The regulation prohibits an FTA recipient from providing 
charter service if there is a private charter operator willing and able 
to provide the charter service proposed by the recipient.
    In determining whether there are any willing and able operators to 
provide this charter service, an FTA recipient must follow the 
procedures set forth at 49 CFR 604.11. These include public 
participation procedures, which require a recipient to send a notice to 
all private charter operators in the proposed geographic area, and to 
any private operator that requires notice, to determine if there is any 
private operator willing and able to provide the charter service 
proposed in the notice. Further, recipients must send a copy of this 
notice to both the American Bus Association and the United Bus Owners 
of America.
    In this connection, the American Bus Association has changed its 
location. This notice merely updates its address.
    For the reasons set forth above, Title 49, Chapter VI of the Code 
of Federal Regulations is amended as set forth below:
