Founded by Cynthia and Paul Scott in 2016, United Region Transit Services (URTS) is a certified Minority Woman Business Enterprise (MWBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) that provides experienced, reliable, and efficient transit support for bus, light rail, and streetcar systems throughout the United States. We do this through safety certification and training, preventative maintenance and risk management, and the creation of thorough operating procedures and manuals – including the development and implementation of 49 CFR Part 673 and 49 CFR Part 674 – State Safety Oversight – to ensure the safety of rail fixed guideway public transportation systems.
As more safety managers retire from the industry, we are here to act as a full-service consultant and program manager for clients ranging from transit agencies, counties, and municipalities to departments of transportation, and national transportation consulting and engineering firms.
Our role in client projects – whether new starts or extensions – means bringing our best to the table every single day. Backed by a consistent track record, unparalleled breadth of knowledge, and best-in-class industry certifications, we consistently exceed expectations while helping our clients positively impact their communities. Our registrations and certifications include:
- World Safety Organization (Certified Safety Manager)
- Transportation Safety Institute (Transit Safety and Security Certification)
- Conference of Minority Transportation Officials
- National Transit Institute
- American Society for Testing & Materials
- OSHA Training in English and Spanish
- Hazard Communication
- Fall Protection
- Confined Space
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Workforce Violence
We understand that nothing matters more than providing the highest quality service so that you can keep your communities’ transportation systems safe, mobile, and prosperous. From consulting at the design phase, to writing integrated testing plans, to providing training for your staff during pre-revenue, we take care of everything so that you can focus on the big picture.
Safety, Quality, and Efficiency
When it comes to transit, experience matters; you need a program manager who understands the industry’s ins and outs and, more importantly, your specific system’s requirements. Throughout each project, our team adheres to the FTA’s Quality Management System Guidelines, including the implementation of Quality Assurance Programs to specify the organization, procedures, documentation, testing, and methods needed to ensure the highest quality of work in accordance with all contract documents.
We’re more than service providers; we’re a team of detail-oriented transportation experts who partner with your team to accomplish your goals with compliance and speed to market in mind. Contact us to find out how we can help with the safety certification and operations of your transit system!
