The purpose of this project was to provide a toolbox for transit systems with an overview of the procedures and guidelines needed to conduct transit incident investigations. This toolbox does not replace existing federally offered training courses, but rather is intended to assist transit systems in implementing and complying with state requirements and best practices associated with bus transit safety and security incidents. This toolbox provides an overview of what to do when an incident occurs and outlines the transit system’s role in conducting an investigation. The objective of the Bus Transit Incident Investigation Toolbox is to provide transit systems with an overview of the procedures and guidelines needed to conduct transit incident investigations. The Toolbox contains a DVD with a 42-minute video and a pocket guide that provides transit systems with an overview of the responsibilities, procedures, and guidelines on how to conduct transit incident investigations.
