The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit
Authority is a governmental agency created by an
Interstate Compact entered into by and between
the State of Maryland, the Commonwealth of
Virginia, and the District of Columbia with the
consent of Congress. Maryland ratified the Com-
pact by Chapter 869, Acts of 1965.
The Authority was created to plan, finance,
and develop a regional rapid transit system for
the national capital region. By acts of the Con-
gress and the General Assemblies of Maryland
and Virginia, this purpose was enlarged to in-
clude the ownership and operation of all mass
transit bus facilities in the Washington region. All
of these bus facilities were acquired by February
4, 1973 (Chapter 776, Acts of 1971). Legislation
was passed by the United States Congress and
signed by the president on June 4, 1976 (PL
94-306), to approve a compact amendment passed
by the Maryland and Virginia General Assem-
blies in 1974 (Maryland, Chapter 586, Acts of
1974; Virginia, Chapter 576, Acts of 1974), which
authorizes the Washington Metropolitan Area
Transit Authority to establish and maintain a
regular police force for the protection of the
patrons, personnel, and property of the Authori-
The Authority is controlled by a six-member
Board of Directors (and six Alternate Directors).
Each of the three signatories to the Compact ap-
point two members. The Maryland members are
appointed by the Washington Suburban Transit
Commission. The Virginia members are appointed
by the Northern Virginia Transportation Com-
mission. The District of Columbia members are
appointed by the District of Columbia City
Council- The Board members and alternates serve
terms commensurate with their service as
members of their appointing bodies.
The chief administrative officer is the General
Manager, who is responsible for all activities of
the Authority subject to policy direction by the
Board (Code Transportation Article, sees. 10^202
through 10-204).
