Metro boss makes new commitment to safety

By Washington Post editors

During today's Metro board meeting, Metro's General Manager John B. Catoe, Jr. pledged to make Metro a safer system. But while he offered strong words, there were few details behind his pledge.

"We have a battle in front of us," he said in a statement to board members at the start of today's board meetings. It's a battle, he said, ". . .to win back public confidence in mass transit. "If people don't feel safe, we won't have riders."

"This is my declaration of war," Catoe said. "Today, it's about action, not about reviews."
