the evaluation of bids under Transporter's capacity

higher than the maximum applicable rate shall be

deemed to be a bid equal to the maximum applicable

Shipper may continue to receive service at the maximum

rate on a month-to-month basis or such other rate

A Shipper who continues service under such basis shall

retain its right of first refusal.
