"GAO (Government Accountability Office) was asked to review commuter railroads' PTC (positive train control ) implementation. Among other objectives, this statement discusses (1) commuter railroads that may not be positioned to meet the PTC deadline or to qualify for an extension, and factors affecting their progress, and (2) the extent to which FRA's (Federal Railroad Administration) management and oversight approach has helped ensure that commuter railroads meet the deadline or qualify for an extension."
