2.7 Customers will be required to utilize MRT's Internet web site to

request service, and execute and amend Service Agreements, to the extent that

MRT's Internet web site has the capability to accommodate such contract

execution, unless MRT otherwise agrees or emergency events prevent such

electronic communication. MRT will designate on its Internet web site the

contracts for which it has electronic execution capability, and will provide

at least thirty (30) days' advance notice, via a posting on its Internet web

site, of the addition of new contracts to its electronic execution procedures.

Prior to entering into any electronic contracts, Customer and MRT will

mutually agree in writing to the terms and conditions of the electronic

contracting process in an electronic access agreement, and the electronic

contracting process shall be subject to any other requirements of applicable

statutes and regulations. Any provisions of the Service Agreement or this

tariff requiring that requests, contracts, or amendments thereto, be in

writing shall be deemed satisfied when accomplished by such electronic means.

Customers and potential Customers, or their authorized agents, who request

service, enter into contracts or amendments to contracts, or otherwise use

MRT's Internet web site in connection with transportation services, shall be

deemed to have agreed and admitted that any employee or other representative

permitted by such users to access such services shall have the legal authority

to act on behalf of the Customers or potential Customers in performing any

functions, and MRT shall be entitled to rely upon the actions of such

representatives. Electronic transactions between Customer and MRT shall be

binding and enforceable in the same manner and to the same extent as written

transactions, and evidence of electronic transactions, if introduced on paper

will be admissible to the same extent as other business records originated in

written form.
