How To File A FOIA Request for STB Records
The Board uses FOIAonline to manage its FOIA requests. With FOIAonline you can submit FOIA requests online, track the status of requests, search for requests submitted to other Federal agencies using FOIAonline, and generate agency-specific FOIA reports.
If you wish to use another method to submit a FOIA request to the STB, please contact Chris Oehrle, FOIA Officer, at 202-245-0271 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) was created to offer mediation services to resolve disputes between FOIA requesters and Federal agencies as a non-exclusive alternative to litigation. Additional information about OGIS can be found here
