Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection. Title: Charter Service Operations. (OMB Number: 2132–0543). Background: FTA recipients may only provide charter bus service with FTAfunded facilities and equipment if the charter service is incidental to the provision of transit service (49 U.S.C. 5323(d). This restriction protects charter service providers from unauthorized competition by FTA recipients. The requirements of 49 U.S.C. 5323(d) are implemented in FTA’s charter regulation (Charter Service Rule) at 49 CFR part 604. Amended in 2008, the Charter Service Rule now contains five (5) provisions that impose information collection requirements on FTA recipients of financial assistance from FTA under Federal Transit Law. First, 49 CFR 604.4 requires all applicants for Federal financial assistance under Federal Transit Law, unless otherwise exempted under 49 CFR 604.2, to enter into a ‘‘Charter Service Agreement,’’ contained in the Certifications and Assurances for FTA Assistance Programs. The Certifications and Assurances become a part of the Grant Agreement or Cooperative Agreement for Federal financial assistance upon receipt of Federal funds. The rule requires each applicant to submit one Charter Service Agreement for each year that the applicant intends to apply for the Federal financial assistance specified above. Second, 49 CFR 604.14(3) requires a recipient of Federal funds under Federal Transit Law, unless otherwise exempt, to provide email notification to all registered charter providers in the recipient’s geographic service area each time the recipient receives a request for charter service that the recipient is interested in providing. Third, 49 CFR 604.12(c) requires a recipient, unless otherwise exempt under 49 CFR part 604.2, to submit on a quarterly basis records of all instances that the recipient provided charter service. Fourth, 49 CFR 604.13 requires a private charter provider to register on FTA’s Charter Registration Web site at http://ftawebprod.fta.dot.gov/ CharterRegistration/ in order to qualify as a registered charter service provider and receive email notifications by recipients that are interested in providing a requested charter service. The rule requires that a registered charter service provider must update its information on the Charter Registration PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18965 Web site at least once every two years. Currently, there are a total of 192 registered private charter service providers. Registration has consistently decreased over the years. Lastly, 49 CFR 604.7 permits recipients to provide charter service to Qualified Human Service Organizations (QHSO) under limited circumstances. QHSOs that do not receive Federal funding under programs listed in Appendix A to part 604 and seek to receive free or reduced rate services from recipients must register on FTA’s Charter Registration Web site (49 CFR 604.15(a)). Respondents: State and local government, business or other for-profit institutions, and non-profit institutions. Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 0.05 hours for each of the 955 Recipient respondents under 49 CFR 604.4, 1.25 hours for each of the 114 Recipient respondents under 49 CFR 604.12, 0.50 hours for each of the 114 Recipient respondents under 49 CFR 604.14, 0.50 hours for each of the 53 non-profit respondents, and 0.50 hours for each of the estimated 192 forprofit respondents. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 369.7 hours. Frequency: Annually, bi-annually, quarterly, and as required. William Hyre, Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration.
