Question:
How do I make a FOIA request for FTA records?
Answer:
You must make your request in writing and include your name, address, and telephone number where you can be reached. You should indicate that you are making a request pursuant to FOIA and describe the records requested to the fullest extent possible. Be reasonably specific as to the record(s) you are seeking (i.e. include the title of the document and, if appropriate, the date of the document). Requests may be submitted by mail, e-mail, fax, or in person. Please visit http://www.fta.dot.gov/about/about_FTA_186.html for more information.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Question:
What is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)?
Answer:
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a Federal statute that affords any person the right to obtain access to Federal agency records, unless the records (or a part of the records) are protected from disclosure by one of the nine exemptions or by one of the three special law enforcement record exclusions contained in the law. FOIA provides for access to agency records, it is not an appropriate vehicle for posing questions of the agency.

Question:
How long will it take before I receive a response to my FOIA request?
Answer:
Once an agency properly receives a FOIA request, it has twenty working days in which to make a determination on the request. FTA strives to respond to all FOIA requests within that timeframe. However it may take us longer to respond to large or complex requests.
