STB Rule Change on Timeline for Negotiating Trail UseDownload

Effective February 2, 2020, the Surface Transportation Board (STB) amends regulations related to railbanking negotiations and the amount of time permitted to reach a railbanking agreement. The new regulations extend the initial railbanking negotiation period to one year (from 180-days) and limit the number of one-year extensions to three, with further extensions considered only under “extraordinary circumstances”.
