"The development of the National Rail Plan must be a collaborative effort," said FRA Administrator Joseph C. Szabo. "We want to work with states, communities, businesses, transportation experts and the public to make sure our future transportation needs are met."
The moderated sessions will be held in five different regions and are open to media and the public. The schedule is as follows: 19 May - Kansas City; 20 May - Atlanta; 26 May - New York City; 3 June - Salt Lake City; and 4 June - Portland, Ore.

In addition to the outreach events listed above, FRA is accepting written comments from interested individuals and organizations through a public docket that has been created for that purpose.
