FTA Special Directive 22-13


FTA issues Special Directive 22-13 to require the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) to oversee the implementation of the four Special Directives issued to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) that address findings documented in FTA’s Safety Management Inspection (SMI) report released on August 31, 2022. DPU must take action to increase its technical capacity and its ability to oversee MBTA’s corrective actions to address the pattern of safety incidents and safety findings concerning workforce management, prioritization of safety management information, effectiveness of safety communication, and operating conditions and policies, procedures, and training.
