FRA Certification Helpline: (216) 694-0240

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, August 25 — On July 27, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) published a crew size proposed rulemaking and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) will be publishing comments that support regulations requiring two-person crews. We believe that having at least two crew members on a train is critical to the safety of employees and the public.

FRA needs to hear from you; we encourage members to post comments from your perspective as a locomotive engineer or conductor. Comments can be made at the link below, and the deadline to submit is September 26, 2022.

When posting comments:

  1. Be concise.
  2. Stay focused on your areas of agreement and disagreement.
  3. Use your experience as your guide. You know rail operations best!
  4. Be professional and courteous.

Crew Size Proposed Rule is here:
