Start Supplemental Information
This notice is provided in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463, 5 U.S.C. App. 2). As noted above, TRACS is a Federal Advisory Committee established to provide information, advice, and recommendations to the Secretary and the Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration on matters relating to the safety of public transportation systems. With the renewed charter, TRACS is renamed as the Transit Advisory Committee for Safety (for continuity the acronym will remain TRACS). The term “RAIL” is omitted from the original title of the advisory committee to reflect the broader current mandate of TRACS to advise on all public transportation safety matters. In addition, TRACS is increased to approximately 29 members representing a broad base of expertise necessary to discharge its responsibilities. Please see the TRACS Web site for additional information at http://www.fta.dot.gov/about/13099.html.
