Tom Carper Rejoins Amtrak Board of Directors

WASHINGTON Amtrak welcomes back Tom Carper to its board of directors. He was nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve a five-year term.Mr. Carper previously served as a board member from March 2008 to March 2013. He was elected chairman in January 2009 and served in that capacity until his term expired.

I look forward to revisiting and tackling the exciting challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, Carper said. Amtrak remains a critical component of national transportation infrastructure and it plays a vital role connecting communities and providing passengers with convenient access to job centers thus enhancing regional economies.

Toms reappointment will only strengthen the make up of the existing board by virtue of his wealth of experience, transportation knowledge and the continued growth of Americas Railroad which continues to enjoy record ridership levels throughout the country, said Amtrak Board Chairman Tony Coscia.

Eight of the nine Amtrak board positions are now filled. Mr. Carper will join Tony Coscia, Bert DiClemente, Christopher Beall, Jeff Moreland, Yvonne Brathwaite Burke, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, and Amtrak President and CEO Joe Boardman.
