Based upon the filings of the Parties and of Megabus, formal Board action is required to include the fifth amendment within the revenue pooling agreements. Thus, if the Parties want approval of the fifth amendment, they should file an application under 49 U.S.C. 14302.
This decision will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.
It is ordered:
1. Formal Board action, pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 14302, is required to include the fifth amendment within the revenue pooling agreements.
2. This decision is effective on its service date.
