DOT/FMCSA RIN: 2126-AB44 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: +Lease and Interchange of Vehicles; Motor Carriers of Passengers 
Abstract: The rulemaking would adopt regulations governing the lease and interchange of passenger vehicles to: (1) identify the motor carrier operating a bus or motorcoach and responsible for compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations; (2) ensure that a lessor surrenders control of the vehicle for the full term of the lease or temporary exchange of vehicles and drivers; and (3) require motor carriers subject to a prohibition on operating in interstate commerce to notify FMCSA in writing before leasing or otherwise transferring control of their vehicles to other carriers.. This action is necessary to ensure that unsafe passenger carriers cannot evade FMCSA oversight and enforcement by operating under the authority of another carrier that exercises no actual control over those operations. This action will ensure that FMCSA, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and our State partners are able to identify motor carriers transporting passengers in interstate commerce and correctly assign responsibility for regulatory violations during inspections, compliance investigations, and crash studies. It also provides the general public with the means to identify the responsible motor carrier at the time of transportation. While detailed lease and interchange regulations for cargo-carrying vehicles have been in effect since 1950, this rulemaking for passenger-carrying CMVs would focus entirely on operational safety.
