The District of Columbia Transit Authority (DCTA) was the agency that managed the Washington, D.C. metro system before the Great War.

Background[edit | edit source]

A prominent mode of transportation servicing the Columbia Commonwealth before the war, the agency and its regulatory committee oversaw several metro lines, interconnecting underneath the streets of the nation's capital.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

By 2277 the stations and tunnels are derelict, overrun by raiders, super mutants, and feral ghouls. Signs still hang on the entrances to the stations, reading "keep out by the DC transit authority."

The remnants of the DCTA can be seen around the metro on signage throughout the stations and on railcars. The acronym DCTA can be seen on the terminals that operate the metro protectrons. There are metro tickets scattered throughout the stations that have "DC" printed on them. There is also a downloadable metro map for the Pip-Boy 2000 Mark VI called the DCTA Metro map.

Notes[edit | edit source]
