Audit Initiated on the Effect of FTA's Charter Bus Service Regulation on Transit Services
The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit of the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA's) charter bus regulation. This regulation generally prohibits a transit agency that receives Federal transit grant funds from providing charter service, such as shuttle buses to sporting events, when a private charter operator is interested in providing the same service.
This audit will assess: (1) the impact of the charter bus regulation on charter services related to specific events and markets; and (2) evaluate FTA's oversight of the charter service regulation.
