Docket No. FD 35738

THE PULLMAN SLEEPING CAR COMPANY, LLC — PETITION FOR EXEMPTION FROM 49 U.S.C. SUBTITLE IV

Decided: May 21, 2014

By petition filed on February 20, 2014, The Pullman Sleeping Car Company, LLC (Pullman) seeks an exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502 from 49 U.S.C. Subtitle IV of the Interstate Commerce Act, as amended by the ICC Termination Act of 1995. By attaching its passenger rail cars to regularly scheduled Amtrak trains, Pullman provides dining, lounge, and sleeping car service for passengers traveling between Chicago, Ill., and New Orleans, La. Petitioner requests that the Board grant it an exemption for this particular route and for any future routes.

The petition for exemption raises issues that require further consideration by the Board. By this decision, the Board is instituting a proceeding under 49 U.S.C. 10502(b). At this time, the Board is not requesting the submission of additional evidence.

It is ordered:

1.      Under 49 U.S.C. 10502(b), a proceeding is instituted.

 

2.      The proceeding will be completed on or before February 20, 2015.

 

3.      This decision is effective on its date of service.

 

By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
