Sec. 374.103 Notice to be printed on tickets.

Every motor common carrier of passengers subject to 49 U.S.C.

for transportation on any vehicle operated in interstate or foreign

Note: The following interpretation of the provisions of Sec. 374.103
(formerly Sec. 1055.2) appears at 27 FR 230, Jan. 9, 1962:

purview of the section. If the ticket is in parts or consists of
additional elements, such as coupons, identification stubs, or checks,
it shall be sufficient for the purposes of Sec. 374.103 that the notice
appear only once on the ticket and be placed on the face of that portion
of the ticket which is held by the passenger.
