In 2004, TRA worked with PANYNJ to establish the AirTrain Safety Oversight Board (ATSOB), an internal board charged with providing safety and security oversight of the AirTrain systems at Newark Liberty (EWR) and John F. Kennedy International (JFK) Airports.

The ATSOB is modeled on the federal rail transit state safety and security oversight program under 49 CFR Part 659, even though the systems are not formally subject to the regulations. TRA performed a “baseline” safety and security review at both AirTrain JFK and Newark, since followed by two triennial safety and security reviews at each location (most recently in 2014 at JFK and 2016 at EWR). Additionally, TRA has provided the ATSOB with technical assistance in reviewing safety and security-related issues at both facilities.
