Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this 
notice announces that the Information Collection Requirements (ICRs) 
abstracted below have been forwarded to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR describe the nature of the 
information collection and their expected burdens. The Federal Register 
notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the 
following collections of information was published on March 14, 2017.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before June 19, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tia Swain, Office of Administration, 
Management Planning Division, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Mail Stop 
TAD-10, Washington, DC 20590 (202) 366-0354 or tia.swain@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 
Pub. L. 104-13, Section 2, 109 Stat. 163 (1995) (codified as revised at 
44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 
1320, require Federal agencies to issue two notices seeking public 
comment on information collection activities before OMB may approve 
paperwork packages. 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.5, 1320.8(d)(1), 
1320.12. On March 14, 2017, published a 60-day notice (82 FR 13726) in 
the Federal Register soliciting comments on the ICR that the agency was 
seeking OMB approval. FTA received no comments after issuing this 60-
day notice. Accordingly, DOT announces that these information 
collection activities have been re-evaluated and certified under 5 CFR 
1320.5(a) and forwarded to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 
CFR 1320.12(c).
    Before OMB decides whether to approve these proposed collections of 
information, it must provide 30 days for public comment. 44 U.S.C. 
3507(b); 5 CFR 1320.12(d). Federal law requires OMB to approve or 
disapprove paperwork packages between 30 and 60 days after the 30 day 
notice is published. 44 U.S.C. 3507 (b)-(c); 5 CFR 1320.12(d); see also 
60 FR 44978, 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. OMB believes that the 30 day notice 
informs the regulated community to file relevant comments and affords 
the agency adequate time to digest public comments before it renders a 
decision. 60 FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995. Therefore, respondents should 
submit their respective comments to OMB within 30 days of publication 
to best ensure having their full effect. 5 CFR 1320.12(c); see also 60 
FR 44983, Aug. 29, 1995.
    The summaries below describe the nature of the information 
collection requirements (ICRs) and the expected burden. The 
requirements are being submitted for clearance by OMB as required by 
the PRA.
    Title: Over-the-Road Bus (OTRB) Accessibility Program.
    OMB Control Number: 2132-0570.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: 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.

    Annual Estimated Total Burden Hours: 144 hours.

ADDRESSES:  All written comments must refer to the docket number that 
appears at the top of this document and be submitted to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 
725 17th Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention: FTA Desk Officer. 
Alternatively, comments may be sent via email to the Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), Office of Management and 
Budget, at the following address: oira_submissions@omb.eop.gov
    Comments are Invited On: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. A comment to OMB is best assured of having its 
full effect if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register.

William Hyre,
Deputy Associate Administrator for Administration.
