AASHTO STANDING COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

SAFETEA-LU IMPLEMENTATION

Federal notices, notices of proposed rulemaking, circular notices, listening session schedules, comment opportunities, and links to SCOPT recommendations will be available on this page.

The AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation is using a team approach to review and comment on SAFTEA-LU-related notices. State DOT transit units are encouraged to participate in the SCOPT process, providing comments that will be incorporated into AASHTO's formal recommendations. States may also wish to comment through their individual DOTs.

SCOPT COMMENT PROCESS
