Passenger rail services on the Coast

Senator Roger Wicker questioned two nominees for the Surface Transportation Board about their commitment to improving on-time passenger rail service in the United States and other rail transport concerns.

Wicker’s first question highlighted concerns raised by Amtrak President and CEO Richard Anderson in a March hearing that certain host railway operators have been consistently denying Amtrak service preference over freight traffic.

Senator Wicker noted that on-time performance is even worse in Mississippi.
