FRA Sets Hearing on Crew Size Rule

The Federal Railroad Administration will conduct a public hearing on Dec. 14 on a proposed minimum crew size regulation.

The hearing will be held between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Washington. It will be carried through at least one online site.

The proposed regulation would set minimum safety requirements for the size of train crews.

A notice published in the Federal Register said public comment is being accepted through Dec. 21.

The FRA proposed in late July that trains have a minimum of two crew members with exceptions for operations that do not pose significant safety risks to railroad workers, the public or environment.
