ABSTRACT

State Safety Oversight Program: Audit of the Tri-State Oversight Committee and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Final Audit Report)   [open pdf - 368KB]

"The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conducted an on-site audit of the safety program implemented by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and overseen by the Tri-State Oversight Committee (TOC) between December 14 and 17, 2009 at WMATA's Jackson Graham Building and Alexandria Rail Yard. Subsequent document requests and reviews took place throughout the month of January 2010. FTA also participated in WMATA's Right-of-Way Safety Workshop, January 11 to 13, 2010. At the end of January, both TOC and WMATA were provided with the opportunity to comment on a draft version of this report. FTA received those comments and incorporated them into this final report. At the end of February, FTA, TOC and WMATA all participated in a public hearing convened by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to focus, in part, on the adequacy of state and federal oversight of rail transit systems, including TOC and FTA's program to oversee WMATA."
