Surface Transportation Board logoWASHINGTON – The three-day Surface Transportation Board hearing on the proposed Canadian Pacific-Kansas City Southern merger has ballooned to a six-day hearing.

Testimony and questioning are taking longer than anticipated, STB Chairman Martin J. Oberman said at the start of the session this morning (Friday, Sept. 30) , which had been scheduled to be the third and final day.

As a result, the board will hold mostly virtual hearings on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 3-4, with remaining witnesses. Canadian Pacific and Kansas City Southern will appear on Thursday, Oct. 6, to rebut comments made throughout the hearings.

  1. What a waste of time…this whole debacle is a joke. Had I been in charge there would’ve been one day of hearings and that’s it, this is a slam dunk approval, and let everyone cry about it.

    1. Again, Gerald, you have it exactly right. I feel for the hearing examiners who have to sit there for days listening to all that worthless stuff.
