Surface Transportation Board

Release of Waybill Data

The Surface Transportation Board has received a request from two professors that work for University of Oregon and Stanford University along with four researchers (WB18-29 – 8/31/18) for permission to use data from the Board’s 1983-2017 Unmasked Carload Waybill Samples.  A copy of this request may be obtained from the Board’s website under docket no. WB18-29.

The waybill sample contains confidential railroad and shipper data; therefore, if any

parties object to these requests, they should file their objections with the Director of the Board's

Office of Economics within 14 calendar days of the date of this notice. The rules for release of

waybill data are codified at 49 CFR 1244.9.
