FTA has released a newly updated version of The Transit Noise and Vibration Impact Assessment Manual, which outlines procedures for predicting and assessing the noise and vibration impacts of proposed transit projects as part of FTA’s environmental review process. This third edition of the guidance manual, originally issued in 1995, includes clarifications to existing policy and updates to outdated references, where applicable, but does not change the assessment procedures. The latest edition will only be available online and includes internal links so readers can more swiftly move between sections of the manual.

FTA is working with the National Transit Institute (NTI) to schedule the Transit Noise and Vibration Impact Assessment course. Please check NTI’s website for course delivery updates.
