Project ID: 07C3004C000
At the request of the Senate Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, the Office of Inspector General will conduct an audit of the root causes of Amtrak delays. The objectives of this audit are to: (1) identify the root causes of delays for Amtrak trains operating outside of the Northeast Corridor, (2) assess whether Amtrak's passenger trains have been granted preference over freight trains as prescribed by law, and (3) identify practices in dispatching trains that influence delays.
