Description

TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 86: Public Transportation Security, Volume 11: Security Measures for Ferry Systems is designed to assist U.S. ferry system operators in evaluating and selecting general security measures (GSM) for their operations consistent with the National Incident Management System.

The seven-step GSM evaluation process and the description of the characteristics of the U.S. ferry system in TCRP Report 86, vol. 11 are supplemented by an Excel tool for applying the seven-step GSM evaluation process.

The TCRP Report 86: Public Transportation Security series assembles relevant information into single, concise volumes, each pertaining to a specific security problem and closely related issues. These volumes focus on the concerns that transit agencies are addressing when developing programs in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the anthrax attacks that followed. Future volumes of the report will be issued as they are completed.
