The 2019 Oregon State Legislature approved House Bill 2603 (HB 2603), which directs the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to study and identify root causes for passenger train delays in Oregon due to freight train interference (FTI) and passenger train interference (PTI). The purpose of the study is to better understand and document why passenger train delays are occurring in Oregon and to consider next steps to improve train delay reporting and minimize delays including those that are due to FTI and PTI.
