First State of Good Repair Roundtable

July 8-10, 2009

On July 8 – 10, 2009 the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and the Federal Transit Administration co-hosted the First State of Good Repair (SGR) Roundtable with representatives from 30 transit agencies from around the United States in Washington, DC.  The SGR Roundtable provided a forum for transit properties to discuss and share best practices on addressing issues associated with the state of repair of transit infrastructure and equipment, transit asset management, and the nexus between capital asset condition and safety.  Participants and FTA shared ideas on initiatives and research activities to advance the State of Good Repair. The SGR Roundtable also provided a better understanding of the common and unique needs of large, old, smaller, and newer transit systems.  The following are the minutes as well as the presentations that were given at the SGR Roundtable and examine these issues.
