STB staff to gather input on proposed rules for performance data

The Surface Transportation Board (STB) announced yesterday that its staff will host informal meetings with stakeholders between Nov. 16 and Dec. 7 on proposed rules for reporting railroad service performance data.

The STB will use the meetings to gather information for their pending proceeding, United States Rail Services Issues, EP 724, according to an STB press release.

The board will use the information to better assess the types of data that might be useful to the public, and how individual railroads monitor performance.

"These informal meetings will allow open and candid conversations between STB staff and stakeholders regarding the highly technical data questions at issue here," STB Chairman Daniel Elliott said. "Dialogue between stakeholders and STB technical staff is especially valuable and efficient in these informal circumstances, outside of an appearance before the board."
