GAO summarized information on issues relating to the Department of Transportation (DOT).

GAO noted that future challenges facing DOT include: (1) enhancing the Secretary of Transportation's leadership in policymaking and program oversight; (2) revising its plan to modernize the air traffic control system; (3) improving the Federal Aviation Administration's effectiveness; (4) improving management of the transportation infrastructure; and (5) reassessing the Coast Guard's expanding responsibilities in light of its available resources.
