STB wants YOUR comments concerning on time rules

01 Feb 2016 2:13 PM | Bill Hutchison (Administrator)

For the first time ever, the U.S. Surface Transportation Board is asking for comments from YOU, the rail-riding public, on two important proposed rule-making decisions: one concerns on-time performance standards and the other centers on whether passenger trains can continue to be given preference in transit on host railroads.

This is one of the extremely rare times in which regulators will be watching the total number of comments, so it’s important that the regulators hear individually from all NARP members and interested rail passengers right away on both actions, but no later than the two deadlines: Feb. 8, 2016, for On-Time Performance, and Feb. 22, 2016, for passenger-train preference.

Generally the STB limits comments to those directly related to the industry, and you can be sure that industry has already weighed in – and continues to weigh in – on these very important points. Don’t let YOUR voice get drowned out, and don’t let YOUR concerns go uncounted!
