OMB 2132-0579

This information collection (IC) request is for a three-year extension without change of a currently approved information collection under OMB control number 2132-0579 “National Transit Asset Management (TAM) System.” The entities that must respond are Tier I (large transit agencies) and Tier II (small transit agencies). Tier I providers are recipients that own, operate, or manage either 1-101 or more vehicles in revenue service during peak regular service across all fixed route modes or in any one non-fixed route mode, or operate rail transit. Tier II providers are entities that 1.) operate 1-100 or fewer vehicles in revenue service during peak regular service across all non-rail fixed route modes or in any one non-fixed route mode, 2.) a sub recipient under the 5311 Rural Area Formula Program, or 3.) are considered an American Indian tribe. Both of these respondents were included in the initial IC submission in 2016. The response to the collection is required to obtain or retain a benefit, as all recipients and sub-recipients of Chapter 53 funds that own, operate, or manage public transportation capital assets must develop TAM plans. This information is collected on yearly basis. That data is submitted to FTA during the submission of their performance measures and targets electronically into the National Transit Database. This request includes an increase in respondents’ due to more Tier II respondents than originally estimated. However, there is an overall decrease in total annual burden hours since the transit providers realized the heaviest burden when drafting their initial TAM plans in 2016-2018. Now respondents are only required to maintain the data and update their TAM plans every four years.
