OMB Control Number: New. Affected Public: Ferry operators nationwide. Number of Respondents: 300. Number of Responses: 300. Total Annual Burden: 100 hours (Average estimate of 20 minutes to complete the survey for each of 300 resulting in a total of 6000 minutes or 100 hours). Abstract: The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA—21) (Pub. L. 105–178), section 1207(c), directed the Secretary of Transportation to conduct a study of ferry transportation in the United States and its possessions. In 2000, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Intermodal and Statewide Planning conducted a survey of approximately 250 known ferry operators. The Safe, Accountable, Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU; H.R. 3, Section 1801(e)) requires that the Secretary, acting through the BTS, shall establish and maintain a national ferry database containing information on routes, vessels, passengers and vehicles carried, funding sources and such other information as the Secretary considers useful. Data collection will rely on a written survey. An electronic version of the questionnaire will also be available to respondents on request. Data will be collected from the entire population of ferry operators (estimate 300 or less). The survey will ask respondents to PO 00000 Frm 00142 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 68127 provide information on: (1) Points served; (2) amount and source of Federal, State, and/or local funds used in the past 24 months; (3) type of ownership; (4) number of passengers and vehicles carried in the past 12 months; (5) any new routes expected to be added within the next five years; and (6) highways that are connected by the ferries. It is estimated that the survey will take, on average, 20 minutes to complete for a total burden of 100 hours (300 respondents*20 minutes/60 = 100 hours). The National Ferry Database may collect business sensitive information. The confidentiality of these data will be protected under 49 CFR 7.17. In accordance with this regulation, only statistical and non-sensitive business information will be made available through publications and public use data files. The statistical public use data are intended to provide an aggregated source of information on ferry boat operations nationwide. ADDRESSES: The agency seeks public comments on its proposed information collection. Comments should address whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Send comments to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725– 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: BTS Desk Officer. Issued in Washington, DC on this 2nd day of November, 2005.
