    Title: Over the Road Bus (OTRB) Accessibility Program (OMB Number: 
2132-0570).
    Background: The Over-the-Road Bus (OTRB) Accessibility Program was 
authorized under section 3038 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 
21st Century (TEA-21), Public Law 105-85, as amended by the Safe, 
Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy 
for Users (SAFETEA-LU), Public Law 109-059, August 10, 2005. OTRBs 
funding was used in intercity fixed route service as well as other 
services, such as commuter, charter and tour bus services. These 
services were an important element of the U.S. transportation system. 
TEA-21 authorized FTA's OTRB Accessibility Program to assist OTRB 
operators in complying with the Department's OTRB Accessibility 
regulation, ``Transportation for Individuals with Disabilities'' (49 
CFR part 37, subpart H). The legislative intent of this grant program 
was to increase the number of wheelchair accessible OTRBs available to 
persons with disabilities throughout the country. The Over the Road Bus

Program was repealed by Congress under the Moving Ahead for Progress in 
the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). However, funds previously authorized for 
programs repealed by MAP-21 remain available for their originally 
authorized purposes until the period of availability expires, the funds 
are fully expended, the funds are rescinded by Congress, or the funds 
are otherwise reallocated. To meet program oversight responsibilities, 
FTA must continue to collect information until the period of 
availability expires, the funds are fully expended, the funds are 
rescinded by Congress, or the funds are otherwise reallocated.
    Respondents: Charter/tour service operators, fixed route companies, 
small mixed service operators.
    Estimated Annual Burden on Respondents: 8 hours for each of the 
respondents.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 600 hours.
    Frequency: Annual.

William Hyre,
Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration.
