The board’s safety and security meeting is expected to be briefed with more details about the derailment, which led to emergency evacuation of passengers, but no reported injuries.

The customer service committee will then revisit the agency’s station naming policy, specifically with regards to commercial naming rights. The public can comment on this agenda item online.
