Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Earlier today, the Federal Transportation Administration (FTA) released a Safety Management Inspection Report [PDF] on the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). In response to the report, Mayor Muriel Bowser released the following statement:

"The FTA's safety audit confirms my belief that WMATA is in need of a management restructuring and organizational turn-around. I will continue to work with the District's appointees to the Board of Directors and our regional partners to demand accountability.”
