To receive public comment on amendments to Chapter 7 concerning Public Transportation rules.


To implement Senate Bill 1523, 85th Legislature, Regular Session, the department is replacing its current rules regarding the oversight of a local rail transit agency’s rail fixed guideway system. The new rules provide for a new administrative review process, new accident and hazard reporting requirements, and make changes to the audit review process. These amendments are also necessary to bring the state into compliance with new Federal Transit Administration requirements.

The deadline for comments is March 12, 2018 at 5:00 pm.
