In the recent years, ridership and frequent usage of the transit options has substantially increased above predicted levels and thus increased the rate of asset degradation. To bring the assets into a "state of good performance", WMATA's current six-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is primarily supporting "Performance Projects". These projects maintain and replace WMATA assets on a life cycle basis and promote safety and reliability by preserving the current levels of service for greater efficiency by taking advantage of the latest technologies and materials. ANGARAI is working with Parsons Brinckerhoff to provide program Management services in planning, management and implementation of the associated CIP projects.
