Statement from CTA President Dorval R. Carter, Jr. (11-17-23)

November 17, 2023

Myself and CTA staff have spent all of today meeting with Chairman Homendy and the team at the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). We reiterated and continue to demonstrate our pledge of full cooperation throughout the entire investigation, and will provide the access to any information, facilities, equipment and personnel to the NTSB to ensure a thorough review. 

In keeping with NTSB protocol, all inquiries about the incident are being directed to that agency, and CTA is currently unable to discuss the specifics of the ongoing investigation. 

We continue to focus on a full and speedy recovery for those injured in this incident.
