    Focusing on the Customer: Prioritizing Safety, Service Reliability, and Financial Responsibility

    General Managers Message

    As I reach out across theregion in my new role asWMATAs Chief Executive,I am privileged to meet andhear from our many, diversestakeholders: WMATAriders, employees and unionleaders, our jurisdictionalpartners and funders,

    oversight authorities, community leaders, and somany others. It is clear that our region expects and deserves aworld class transit system with the highest safetyculture. The system must also provide frequent,reliable service to customers and be supported byadequate funding and sound financial management.Delivering on these expectations are my toppriorities.This budget is a good beginning, that will berefined going forward as we reexamine WMATAschallenges, resources and management in thecontext of the regions needs. Our vision andbusiness plan will incorporate the result of an on-going efficiency analysis and will build upon thehard work of our employees. The FY2017 budgetprovides a foundation for future actions thatreinforce my core priorities of safety first, servicereliability, and responsible fiscal management. The FY2017 budget funds important safetyinvestments, including compliance with 91corrective actions required by the Federal TransitAdministrations (FTA) Safety ManagementInspection (SMI) report, as well as NationalTransportation Safety Board (NTSB)recommended projects. Other key safetyinvestments include the installation of a new railradio system and continuation of WMATAsfatigue management system for safety sensitive

    positions.Very importantly, the budget refocuses onregaining customer confidence with actions thatwill improve service reliability, as well as attractmore riders. One key action is a 15-minute graceperiod so riders who quickly enter and exit astation, particularly during a service disruption, willnot be charged. A new pass is designed to attractmore college students during off-peak times, andcurrent rail riders will find that existing Metrorailpasses will be more attractive with new, unlimitedaccess to Metrobus at no additional charge. For Metrorail, we will continue our railcarmodernization with new 7000 series railcars inFY2017, which will greatly improve reliability andthe customer experience. We will also upgradeinfrastructure at WMATAs Rail OperationsControl Center and launch a modern customercontact center to better engage customers throughdigital media. Our Customer Accountability Report(CARe) will help restore public trust byshowcasing our progress in meeting these safety,service reliability and fiscal accountabilityinitiatives. Finally, the FY2017 budget is balanced withoutraising fares for customers, reducing service, orincreasing support from jurisdictions. I lookforward to working with the Board, our customersand our funding partners to provide safe andreliable service for the region.
