In collaboration with the Federal Transit Administration, Metro has developed an action plan to address the safety findings and recommendations.
Metro Deputy General Manager Rob Troup recently reported on new safety actions in response to the January 12 incident that occurred in a tunnel near L'Enfant Plaza Station.
"As our work with the NTSB investigation team continues, I have concluded that additional actions can and will be taken to improve safety for our rail passengers, employees and first responders," said Troup. "While we remain committed to taking any actions recommended by the NTSB in their final investigation report, we are not waiting to make safety improvements where we see opportunities."
