Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 78138 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 248 / Monday, December 29, 2014 / Notices required of the rural sub-recipients. Additionally, they also report contact information, funding allocation information, a revenue vehicle inventory, the number of stations and maintenance facilities, and total injuries, fatalities, and safety incidents. The reports are also required to be reviewed by an auditor and certified by the CEO. Systems with this waiver are also exempt from the Monthly and Safety & Security Modules. FTA estimates that completing a report for a Small Systems Waiver requires approximately 27 hours, including time to assemble the information and respond to validation questions from FTA about the report. Estimated Total Annual Urban Burden: 11,400 hours. Frequency: Annually. NTD Annual Module—Full Reports: FTA expects about 550 transit systems to file complete reports. Estimated Annual Burden: The Full Report to the Annual Module is comprehensive. Basic contact information, as well as information on sub-recipients and purchased transportation contracts must be provided. Sources of funds for operating expenses and capital expenses must be provided, as well as detailed operating and capital expenses for each mode by function and object class. Key service data collected includes vehicle revenue miles, vehicle revenue hours, unlinked passenger trips, and passenger miles traveled; these must be provided by average, weekday, average Saturday, average Sunday, and as an annual total. Most systems that do not inherently collect passenger mile information (such as a ferryboat or commuter rail) must conduct random sampling for passenger mile information. Large systems with more than 100 vehicles are required to sample for passenger miles every year, whereas smaller systems are only required to sample every third year. A comprehensive revenue vehicle inventory is collected, as well as information on fixed guide-way mileage, passenger stations, maintenance facilities, fuel consumption, employee hours, and maintenance breakdowns. Reports are also required to be reviewed by an auditor and certified by the system CEO. Approximately 100 large systems are required to sample for passenger miles each year and approximately 450 midsize systems sample every three years. FTA estimates that it takes approximately 340 hours per year to sample for passenger miles, which is amortized over three years for mid-sized systems. FTA estimates that completing the remaining financial, operating, VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:09 Dec 24, 2014 Jkt 235001 resource, and capital asset information requires approximately 250 hours per year per transit system, including gathering the information, completing the forms, and responding to validation questions. Estimated Total Burden: 222,500 hours. Frequency: Annually. NTD Monthly Module: FTA expects about 550 transit systems to report to the Monthly Module. Estimated Annual Burden: Each month, vehicle revenue miles, vehicle revenue hours, unlinked passenger trips, and vehicles operated in maximum service are submitted to the Monthly Module. FTA estimates that it takes approximately 4 hours each month for each system to report the data, including collecting and assembling the data for each mode, filling out the form, and responding to any validation questions in regards to the data. Estimated Total Annual Urban Burden: 26,400 hours. Frequency: Monthly. NTD Safety Event Reporting Module: FTA expects about 550 transit systems to report to the Safety & Security Module. Estimated Annual Burden: Each system provides an annual report on the total number of system security personnel, and an annual CEO certification of the safety data. Each month, systems provide a summary report of all minor fires and all incidents resulting in single-person injuries due to slips, falls, or electrical shocks. Additionally, systems must provide a detailed report within 30 days of any incident involving one or more fatalities, one or more injuries, or total property damage in excess of $25,000. FTA currently receives about 6,000 major incident reports per year, and estimates that it takes on average about 2 hours to collect data for each incident, enter it into the NTD, and respond to any validation question. Additionally, FTA estimates that each of the 550 full reporters spend on average one hour each month completing the minor incident summary reports. Estimated Total Annual Urban Burden: 18,600 hours. Frequency: Monthly. Total Annual NTD Burden: 304,900 hours. Matthew M. Crouch, Associate Administrator for Administration.
