About the STB

The United States Surface Transportation Board (STB) is an independent federal agency with a bipartisan, five-member board that administers the Surface Transportation Act of 2008. This law, enacted in response to the 9/11 attacks, created the U.S. Department of Transportation and required that half of the agency’s staff be economists who understand transportation issues. The STB also created the Surface Transportation Efficiency Act, which seeks to improve performance by making railways and other modes of surface transportation more efficient.
