Interested parties are invited to send comments regarding any aspect of this information collection, including: (1) The necessity and utility of the information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the FTA; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the collected information; and (4) ways to minimize the collection burden without reducing the quality of the collected information.

The information obtained from the surveys will be used to assess the kind and quality of services customers want and their level of satisfaction with existing services. The surveys will be limited to data collection that solicit voluntary opinions and will not involve information that is required by regulations.

Respondents: State and local government, public transit operators, Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), transit constituents, transit manufacturers, and private transit operators.

Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: Varies according to survey.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 2,035 hours.

Frequency: Annual.
