Implementation Guidelines
These guidelines assist transit agencies in developing drug and alcohol testing programs that comply with Federal Transit Administration regulation 40 CFR Part 655. Pertinent regulations are cross-referenced throughout the text. Forms, checklists, and lists of additional information are provided throughout the document.

Best Practices Manual
This document discusses "best practices" used by employers to establish and maintain a compliant drug testing program. The best practices discussed here were identified during 5 years of FTA-sponsored audits of existing programs.

Prescription and Over-the-Counter Toolkit
This Toolkit is a compilation of policies, procedures, forms, and training resources that represent the best practices being used throughout the U.S. by a variety of transit systems. It does not represent all of the effective means that transit systems are using to address and monitor Prescription (Rx) and Over-the-Counter (OTC) medication use, but is the result of an extensive effort by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to compile a broad range of materials as examples and models.


Policy Tools
All anti-drug and alcohol misuse programs must have a statement describing the employer's policy on prohibited drug use and alcohol misuse in the workplace.

Use the Policy Requirements Checklist to ensure your own policy includes all required elements.
