Business Support Facilities
Metro’s support facilities house transit and public safety operations as well as busi- ness functions. The largest of these facilities is the Jackson Graham Building (JGB) located in downtown Washington, DC. JGB houses Metro’s administrative offices, including transit operations (rail, bus and MetroAccess), MTPD administration, engineering, information technology, finance, planning, human resources and com- munications. The building also houses an Operations Control Center (OCC) that monitors the movement of Metro vehicles.
In addition to JGB, other Metro business support facilities include the Carmen Turner Facility (CTF) in Hyattsville, MD that in the near future will house the primary OCC,
