Moyer to Head STB Passenger Rail Office

Neil Moyer has been named to serve as acting director of the Office of Passenger Rail of the U.S. Surface Transportation Board.

He has coordinated the new office. In a news release, the STB said Moyer “is a recognized expert in issues involving Amtrak and passenger-rail service in the United States.”

The office will be responsible for investigating and analyzing Amtrak on-time performance issues.

A section of the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 authorizes federal regulators to investigate the causes of substandard passenger-rail on-time performance, to identify mitigating measures, and, under specified conditions, to prescribe relief.
