Title: 49 U.S.C. 5320 Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program (OMB Number: 2132-0574).
Abstract: This collection involves FTA's Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program. This program is necessary because it addresses the challenge of increasing traffic pollution and crowding in and around our National parks and other federal lands. To address these concerns, this program has provided more than $163 million in funding for alternative transportation systems, such as shuttle buses, rail connections and even bicycle trails. On October 1, 2013, the Paul S. Sarbanes Transit in Parks Program was repealed Start Printed Page 13949by Congress under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). However, to meet federal program oversight responsibilities, FTA must continue to collect information under the program management stage until the period of availability expires; the funds are fully expended; the funds are rescinded by Congress; or the funds are otherwise reallocated.
Estimated Total Annual Burden: 370 hours.
All written comments must refer to the docket number that appears at the top of this document and be submitted to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725—17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: FTA Desk Officer.
Comments are Invited On: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
