HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Metro-North President Joseph Giulietti  has given Connecticut's transportation commissioner a preliminary 100-day improvement plan.

Giulietti told Commissioner James Redeker on Monday the first priority is to rebuild a culture of safety. He said Metro-North's priorities are to operate safely, communicate better and restore performance.

Giulietti said Metro-North will re-establish a department to enforce safety policies, a data analysis unit to identify positive and negative trends, and improve programs to train and test employees on their knowledge of safe operations.

He promised at least six meetings with commuters during the 100 days.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said he is disappointed that Metro-North did not provide more specifics. He said Giulietti's letter is a roadmap to better and safer service, riders need to know that there is a plan with benchmarks and deadlines.
