FHWA Seeks Comment on Equal Access for Over-the-Road Buses ››

On April 28, 2017, FHWA published a Federal Register Notice seeking review and comment on definitions and applicable facilities related to requirements contained in Section 1411(a) and (b) of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. Those Sections of the FAST Act amended 23 U.S.C. 129 and 23 U.S.C. 166 to address equal treatment of over-the-road buses (OTRBs) that access toll highways and high occupancy vehicle (HOV) facilities. FHWA is seeking public comment on definitions of terms such as "public transportation bus" and "serve/serving the public," comment on facilities subject to OTRB equal access, including Section 129 Facilities and Section 166 Facilities, and comment on the list of covered Section 129 Facilities that is found on the docket with the Federal Register Notice.
