(3)           In the case of common and contract carriers, filing tariffs and schedules or rates and charges with the Utilities Commission to be made for the transportation service authorized, as provided by the Utilities Commission.

(b)  Unless a common or contract carrier complies with the foregoing requirements and begins operating, as authorized, within a period of 30 days after the commission's order approving the application becomes final, and unless the time is extended in writing by the Utilities Commission upon written request, the operating rights therein granted will cease and determine.
