Sign Up for FTA's Charter Service Registry

On a recent UMA Town Hall, Ken Presley cautioned everyone that dwindling participation in the Federal Transit Administration's Charter Service Registry could put the program in jeopardy.

It was mentioned that only 216 carriers are currently enrolled in the FTA's registry. We are encouraging you to sign-up for the Charter Service Registry, so you don't miss opportunities, and to assist in keeping the program in place.

"If you are not registered," Ken said, "you cannot use the charter service regulation to prevent a public transit from taking a charter or file a complaint. The regulation is there for your protection: register!" 

Also, UMA asked us to share news about the Expo:  the low rate of $399 for Operator Members expires after February 5, 2021. Click on the image above to learn more!
