Casper Area Transit bus (City of Casper)

CASPER, Wyo. — On Tuesday, the Casper City Council voted to adopt a Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan for bus transit operation in the Casper urbanized area.

The city receives money from the Federal Transit Administration and the Wyoming Department of Transportation for the public transit services it provides.

“As an operator of a public transportation system, the City is required to draft a safety plan in accordance with 49 C.F.R. Part 673, which describes its policies, accountabilities, measurements, safety performance targets, and promotion of safety activities to its employees and the general public,” a memo from city staff stated. “The City of Casper is accountable for annual compliance reporting of its PTASP to WYDOT, prior to any grant applications.

“The Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the fiscal agent for the City of Casper’s FTA and WYDOT grant funds for transit operations in the Casper urbanized area. The MPO Policy Committee passed a motion at their February 16, 2023 meeting to approve the PTASP and move it forward for approval and adoption by the Casper City Council.”
