November 13, 2015: STB to Hold Meeting with Shippers and Stakeholders

The Surface Transportation Board is holding an informal meeting with shippers and stakeholders from November 16 until December 7. This meeting will give stakeholders the opportunity to voice their comments regarding the proposed rules for reporting railroad service performance data. STB will also take this opportunity to discuss what types of data will be the most useful to the public and to evaluate how railroads monitor performance. STB Chairman Daniel Elliot feels these meetings will “allow open and candid conversations between STB staff and stakeholders regarding the highly technical data questions at issue here.”
