Share your thoughts on the departure of D.C. Metro chief John Catoe Jr. and the agency's future
Metro General Manager John B. Catoe Jr. announced on Thursday his plans to retire April 2. The transit agency, which faces massive budget deficits, deteriorating infrastructure and intense federal scrutiny, now must find a new chief executive.
Metro columnist Robert McCartney says a fractured governining board and the need to invest billions in the aging system are two of the challenges the transit agency's faces beyond finding a new leader. And an editorial in The Washington Post describes the confluence of events as "a real crisis for the 34-year-old transit system."
