Download as PDF sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 25784 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 85 / Thursday, May 2, 2013 / Notices through the BTS, to establish and maintain a national ferry database containing current information regarding routes, vessels, passengers and vehicles carried, funding sources and such other information as the Secretary considers useful. This same legislation also required biennial updating of the database. BTS conducted the first Census of Ferry Operators in 2006, 2008 and again in 2010. Recently enacted MAP–21 legislation [Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (Pub. L. 112– 141)], continues the BTS mandate to conduct the NCFO and requires that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) use the NCFO data to set the specific formula for allocating federal ferry funds ($67 million in 2013 and 2014). The funding allocations are based on a percentage of the number of passenger boardings, vehicle boardings, and route miles served. The MAP–21 legislation also requires that BTS make additional changes to the NCFO questionnaire to ensure that the resulting database is consistent with the National Transit Database maintained by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). As a result, BTS has removed census questions that were no longer specifically mandated (e.g., peak boarding times, etc.) and added more detailed items about the core infrastructure of the ferry operations themselves. The overall length of the revised questionnaire remains consistent with that of previous years. The survey will be administered to the entire population of ferry operators (estimate 260 or less). The survey will request the respondents to provide information such as: The points served; the type of ownership; the number of passengers and vehicles carried in the past 12 months; vessel descriptions (including type of fuel), and intermodal connectivity. All data collected in 2013 will be added to the existing NCFO database. Respondents: The target population for the survey will be all of the approximately 260 operators of existing ferry services in the United States. Estimated Average Burden per Response: The burden per respondent is estimated to be an average of 30 minutes. This average is based on an estimate of 20 minutes to answer new questions and an additional 10 minutes to review (and revise as needed) previously submitted data. Estimated Total Annual Burden: The total annual burden (in the year that the survey is conducted) is estimated to be approximately 130 hours (that is 30 minutes per respondent for 260 respondents equals 7,800 minutes). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 May 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 Frequency: This survey will be updated every other year. Public Comments Invited: Interested parties are invited to send comments regarding any aspect of this information collection, including, but not limited to: (1) The necessity and utility of the information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the DOT; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, clarity and content of the collected information; and (4) ways to minimize the collection burden without reducing the quality of the collected information. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection.
