This scheme applies to recipients of financial assistance (usually state or local government agencies) from the Federal Transit Administration (an operating administration within DOT) who provide charter bus services in a manner that unlawfully competes with private charter operations. The regulations define "charter service" as transportation provided for a third party seeking exclusive use of a bus or van at a negotiated price, or transportation provided to the public for irregular and/or limited-duration events. See 49 CFR 604.3(c)(2). Cases enforcing the regulations of Part 604 are adjudicated under the procedures of Subparts F through K of the same part.
