North Carolina Railroad Company President and CEO Appointed to Federal Surface Transportation Board’s Passenger Rail Advisory Committee

Carl Warren, President and CEO of the North Carolina Railroad Company (NCRR), was appointed to the distinguished Passenger Rail Advisory Committee (PRAC) on Thursday, March 28th, 2024. Warren was selected to fill the seat as an at-large representative for a three-year term.

The Federal Surface Transportation Board announced the establishment of the PRAC in November 2023. The Committee will provide ongoing advice and guidance on passenger rail transportation to aid the Board in fulfilling its statutory responsibilities. This includes initiatives to improve efficiency, resolve disputes between passenger and freight rail carriers, and streamline regulatory processes, all benefiting the public, communities served by passenger rail, and environmental conservation.

“I am honored to join the Passenger Rail Advisory Committee as a representative of the North Carolina Railroad Company,” said Carl Warren. “This opportunity aligns perfectly with NCRR’s commitment to enhance transportation infrastructure and foster community connectivity. I’m grateful to Chairman Oberman for the appointment, and I can’t wait to get to work.”

North Carolina was ranked America’s Top States for Business for the second consecutive year, making it increasingly important to balance passenger and freight transportation issues. Considering the unparalleled expertise of the NCRR executive team in both freight and passenger rail management, this appointment presents a unique opportunity for this North Carolina company to spearhead innovative rail management strategies.

Having Warren on the PRAC – someone who understands the intricate needs of the state’s freight and passenger infrastructure – will be instrumental in fostering continued prosperity and growth in The Tar Heel State.
