Surface Transportation Board Introduces Redesigned Web Site
Surface Transportation Board Chairman Roger Nober today announced the introduction of the Board's newly redesigned and upgraded Web site. The redesigned site was launched after a lengthy project to upgrade and modernize the Board's existing Web site.
In introducing the redesigned Web site, Chairman Nober said:
I am pleased to announce that our newly redesigned Web site has come online, and encourage our stakeholders to explore its offerings. I directed that the Board undertake this effort after I heard from numerous stakeholders that our existing site was difficult to use and outdated. One of my top priorities has been to make more agency information available to the public in an understandable and user-friendly format, and this redesigned Web site is a major step in that direction."
The Web site's new features include:
Significantly improved capability to search documents on file;
"E-filing", or the ability for parties to make Board filings electronically;
Live and archived streaming audio of all Board proceedings;
Upgraded, more understandable layout and design; and
Service lists available electronically.
