WMATA SafeTrack Plan

NOTICE: To Employers & Employees withinin
Prince George's County

This morning WMATA General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld  released SafeTrack, an expanded track work plan to improve Metrorail safety and restore service reliability.

" Wiedefeld’s SafeTrack plan includes 15 "safety surges" over the next year that will accelerate maintenance on Metro’s rail system from the ballast up. By closing the system at midnight on weekends and expanding weekday maintenance opportunities, the plan addresses FTA and NTSB safety recommendations and deferred maintenance backlogs while restoring track infrastructure to good health." - wmata.com

While still a *draft* plan, Prince George's County Employers should be made aware of these plans and shared accordingly with their employees who use Public Transportation.
