      Triennial Review
      Every three years the District must go through a FTA review and evaluation of 5307 grant activities in 23
      different areas for compliance of regulations and requirements. The review was a one and a half day process
      that concluded on May 24, 2006. It was made clear to management and staff that attended the entrance
      conference, the review is specifically intended to find the areas of weakness so that they may be corrected.

      I am happy to report that the District did very well in the outcome of the review. There were five (5) areas
      found with relatively insignificant deficiencies. One of those was closed prior to the exit conference.


                                                          2
      I commend the entire staff for the work they did in preparation of the review, the day-to-day administration
      efforts they make to carry-out the District’s role and responsibilities to providing quality mass transit and
      compiling with requirements imposed by our funding sources.

      Lastly, while we were informed that the purpose of the review was to identify weaknesses, management was
      complimented by the Director, Office of Program Management and Oversight on the efficiency and
      accountability of our transit organization.

      Service Enhancement
      As mentioned a few months ago when I met with the Mayor’s Advisory Commission for the Disabled, the need
      to enhance access to the shopping areas was discussed. The need for this type of connection had been
      identified by our operations department even prior to this time.

      Through the of collaboration of operations and the planning department connecting several of the shopping
      areas has been designed by using layover time, consequently incurring no additional labor cost for this
                                                 th
      enhancement. The service began June 5 and we expect that it will take some time to catch on. Information to
      the public regarding the additional service was delivered through the media and other promotional efforts by
      staff members.
