National Transit Database submittals (Brockton Area Transit Authority)

Mary Connaughton Pioneer Institute filed this request with the Brockton Area Transit Authority of Massachusetts.


From: Tom Nash

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

2012 and 2011 National Transit Database submittals, in full

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Dear Mr. Nash,

In response to your request for the BAT 2011 & 2012 NTD submittals please be
advised that BAT does not maintain the files requested in an "accessible
format." The annual NTD submittal is made electronically to the NTD
internet reporting via a secure password. BAT only maintains a hard copy
of each submittal. I would be happy to provide you with a PDF of both the
2011 and 2012 report or you could access the information directly from the
NTD website as described in the above email addressed to me.

Thank you,

Charles C. Stevenson, BAT

General Counsel

Hi Charles,

A PDF of whatever isn't available on the website would be great -- I take it that 2012 is not?
