Steer Director Liliana Pereira appointed to Passenger Rail Advisory

Steer Director Liliana Pereira appointed to Passenger Rail AdvisorySteer Director Liliana Pereira has been appointed to the Passenger Rail Advisory Committee (PRAC) of the Surface Transportation Board (STB). The Surface Transportation Board is an independent federal agency that is charged with the economic regulation of various modes of surface transportation, in the United States.

In November 2023, the STB announced the formation of the committee, which it has now appointed.

Joining a team of 21 experts, Liliana, from our Oakland Office, will contribute her expertise to address issues affecting passenger rail service throughout the US. With over two decades of experience in transportation, specifically in rail projects worldwide and in the US, Liliana is well-equipped to serve the PRAC.

The PRAC will be responsible for providing information, advice, and recommendations to the STB on issues surrounding the development and operation of passenger rail services. The Committee will cover efficiency, regulatory processes for intercity passenger rail, and various consumer, social, and environmental concerns.

“I’m thankful for being selected for PRAC and eager to work with other members in advising the STB on regulation to creating reliable, inclusive, and sustainable intercity passenger rail services in the US. Through my work at Steer, I have developed a deep understanding of intercity rail services and how they can contribute to more equitable outcomes. I will share these perspectives during the PRAC discussions”.
