The Surface Transportation Board announced today that it has rescheduled its public listening session on CSX Transportation, Inc.’s (CSXT) recent rail service problems for Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at its headquarters in Washington, DC. The listening session will allow the Board to hear from CSXT about its service issues and recovery efforts, as well as hear from rail shippers and other stakeholders affected by service disruptions. Originally scheduled for September 12, 2017, the listening session was postponed by the Board due to Hurricane Irma.

The Board has directed CSXT to appear at the listening session, and encourages impacted shippers and other railroads to appear as well.
