Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration August 14, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Lease and Interchange of Vehicles; Motor Carriers of Passengers
Document Number: 2019-17342
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-14
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA amends its May 27, 2015, final rule on Lease and Interchange of Vehicles; Motor Carriers of Passengers (2015 final rule) in response to petitions for rulemaking. This final rule narrows the applicability of the 2015 final rule by excluding certain contracts and other agreements between motor carriers of passengers that have active passenger carrier operating authority registrations with FMCSA from the definition of lease and the associated regulatory requirements. For passenger carriers that remain subject to the leasing and interchange requirements, FMCSA returns the bus marking requirement to its July 1, 2015, state with slight modifications to add references to leased vehicles; revises the exception for the delayed writing of a lease during certain emergencies; and removes the 24-hour lease notification requirement.
