The Federal Transit Administration's Research, Development, Demonstration, Deployment, Cooperative Research, Technical Assistance, Standards Development, and Human Resources and Training programs are authorized at 49 U.S.C. 5312, 5313, 5314, and 5322 and collectively seek to develop solutions that improve public transportation. Its primary goals are to increase transit ridership, improve safety and emergency preparedness, improve operating efficiencies, protect the environment, promote energy independence, and provide transit research leadership; develop and conduct workforce development activities, training and educational programs for Federal, State, and local transportation employees, United States citizens, and foreign nationals engaged or to be engaged in Government-aid relating to public transportation work; and to sponsor development of voluntary and consensus-based standards to more effectively and efficiently provide transit service, as well as support the improved administration of Federal transit funds. To accomplish this, FTA funds projects to support research and development, demonstration, deployments of various technologies and operational models for transit; a national cooperative research program, a national training institute, national technical assistance centers, and transit workforce development programs.

Miscellaneous Actions
There is an increase in the burden hours requested under the current information collection request from 11,240 hours previously approved to the newly requested burden hours of 20,550 due to the addition of new programs being added to FTA’s Transit Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment Projects as authorized under MAP-21 and the increase in technical complexity of research projects. In addition, the number of respondents was reduced from 200 to 175 due to more accurate information generated from respondents during recent funding availability.
