Comply with the Transit Asset Management Rule
The federal Transit Asset Management Final Rule, effective October 1, 2016, defines the term state of good repair and establishes minimum requirements for transit asset management. This applies to all recipients of Federal financial assistance (under 49 U.S.C. Chapter 53) who own, operate, or manage public transportation capital assets.
