Dear Customer,

Union Pacific is pleased to announce an enhancement to our Grain Shuttle Program. Union Pacific will continue paying a $100 trip incentive on all 12 month shuttles and effective, August 1, 2013, we will offer a 6 month shuttle option with no trip incentive. Customers that run two or more 12 month shuttle sets will have the option to request an additional 6 month shuttle set. For example; a customer that has 2 annual sets running from Oct thru Sep could elect to run an additional set during any 6 month continuous period as long as the entire 6 month period was complete by end of Sep. Requests for 6 month shuttles will be subject to availability.
