FTA Posts Updated Implementation Guidelines for Drug & Alcohol Regulations in Public Transportation

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has posted updated guidelines to provide transit employers with the knowledge and resources needed to develop, implement, and manage a drug and alcohol testing program to comply with FTA and U.S. Department of Transportation regulations. Employers with well-established drug and alcohol testing programs can use these guidelines to assess their level of compliance, validate policies and procedures, and identify areas that require modification.  This guidance was last revised in 2009.
