NVTC manages state and federal assistance to Metro, conducts Northern Virginia’s regional transit preparedness program, and engages in regional transportation planning, data analysis, and reporting. Among other things, the Commission:

  • secures funding for Metro
  • ensures that funds are spent in compliance with state and federal law
  • promotes safe, reliable and cost-effective service

NVTC also appoints Virginia’s Members of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Board of Directors, Metro’s governing body. The board — established in 1967 through a compact between Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia — determines agency policy and provides oversight for funding, operations, and the expansion of transit facilities.
