Rail Transit OPS Group is an independent, publicly-funded group that evaluates the operations, performance and safety of passenger rail transit systems across the country. We proactively identify potential concerns and issue recommendations to the organizations responsible for these systems as well as monitor day-to-day operational activity, all from an unbiased perspective. Currently, our focus is on the Washington DC Metro area, primarily the following:

  • Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA)

Presently, our team consists of the following individuals:

  • Roger Bowles (Charter Member) is detailed with reviewing procedures and policies with a concentration in safety management & incident reviews; provides field audits on rail operations
  • James Pizzurro of MetroHero (Charter Member) is a software engineer detailed with providing real-time visualizations and historical operational data on WMATA Metrorail performance
  • Stephen Repetski (Charter Member) is detailed with providing analysis of WMATA Metrorail operations via data visualization and agency historical contexts
