The original study was conducted from 2003–2005 by District Department of Transportation in partnership with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), and after an intensive 18-month public engagement process the DCAA identified a network of efficient, high-capacity surface transit for the District of Columbia.
