Fixed Guideway, State Safety Oversight Agency (SSOA)

The Annual Public Rail Transit Safety Report

Federal regulation 49 CFR Part 674 requires a state to oversee the safety and security of rail fixed guideway systems through a designated oversight agency. Executive Order 65 (1997) places the responsibility with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), while N.J.A.C. 16:53E requires development of the rules that govern oversight.

At least once a year, the SSOA reports the status of the safety of each rail fixed guideway public transportation system to the Governor, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and the board of directors, or equivalent entity, of the rail fixed guideway public transportation system. [49 CFR Part 674.13(7)]
