On July 10, 1952, Congress passed the National Capital Planning Act mandating preparation of plans for movement of people and goods in the region. Eight years, later President Eisenhower signs the National Capital Transportation Act, creating the National Capital Transportation Agency (NCTA) to develop rapid rail system. On March 27, 1976, six years, three months and 23 days after its groundbreaking, Metrorail opened. More than 51,000 persons ride free over the 4.2 miles of Metro's first five stations on the Red Line from Rhode Island Ave to Farragut North.
The records of the Congressional Acts related to our Nation's Capital's transportation are held in trust by the National Archives.
