The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is a U.S. agency within the Department of Transportation. It includes the many forms of public transportation, including busses, subways, light and commuter rails, monorails, ferry boats, and trolleys.
The Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991 mandated the Secretary of Transportation to issue regulations to combat prohibited drug use and alcohol misuse in the transportation industry. This is to protect operators and passengers of any form of public transportation. As such, all federal transit employees must comply with mandatory drug and alcohol testing. The most common drugs federal transit employees are tested for include: marijuana, cocaine, opiates, phencyclidine (PCP), and amphetamines.
