FTA Corrective Action Plan

FTA CAP Header

In collaboration with the Federal Transit Administration, Metro has developed an action plan to address the safety findings and recommendations issued by the FTA following its organization-wide Safety Management Inspection (SMI) of the WMATA rail and bus transit systems. Ninety-one different actions have been identified to address 44 safety findings in eight categories regarding WMATA's Metrorail system and 10 safety findings in five categories regarding WMATA's Metrobus system.

Metro will next identify the total funding and staffing requirements to present to the Metro Board of Directors, and further develop an integrated implementation plan that includes these actions as well as those identified by other safety oversight groups.
