The TRA team worked with MWCOG and stakeholders from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia to create an effective and efficient SSOA program that covers the nation’s second-busiest rail transit system.

The TRA team’s work has involved: surveying benchmarking other safety oversight agencies; analyzing the effort and expense needed for technical and administrative functions of the MSC; creating organizational structure and budget options; writing governance documents and procedures; drafting job descriptions and a recruitment profile; and staging an agency implementation plan, all within a seven-week period.
