Rail Transit OPS Group is an independent, 100% publicly-funded and operated organization that was launched in December 2015 to evaluate operations and compliance with operational and safety processes of rail transit systems.

As of May 1, 2019, as part of our expanded two-fold mission, we provide additional information on service delays and incidents and evaluate the operations, performance, and safety (OPS) of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Metrorail system. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay apprised.

By working closely with our partner MetroHero and performing field evaluations, we proactively identify potential concerns and issue recommendations that would mitigate potential incidents from occurring.

Our operations are 100% funded by public contributions. The level of these contributions dictates the level of service we are able to provide.

Our Most Wanted List includes:

  1. For WMATA to overhaul, train and enforce radio discipline for all rail personnel to mitigate radio transmission 
  2. For WMATA to return to Automatic Train Operation (ATO) and Automatic Door Operations on a full-time basis
  3. For WMATA to operate 7000-series train consists of six-car configurations during off-peak hours
