The MSC will become the federally-certified State Safety Oversight Agency with responsibility for conducting safety oversight and enforcement of the Metrorail system. The MSC is an entirely independent agency from the operator of Metrorail, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA).
