TRANSIT TITLE VI POLICY

Electric City Transit (ECT) is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its services on the basis of race, color, or national origin, as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended. Toward this end, it is the objective of ECT to:

  • Ensure that the level and quality of transportation service is provided without regard to race, color, or national origin;
  • Identify and address, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects of programs and activities on minority populations and low income populations;
  • Promote the full and fair participation of all affected populations in transportation decision making;
  • Prevent the denial, reduction, or delay in benefits related to programs and activities that benefit minority populations or low-income populations;
  • Ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by persons with limited English proficiency.

The Transit Director, management and all supervisors and employees share the responsibility for carrying out ECT’s commitment to Title VI. The Title VI coordinator is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the program and receives and investigates Title VI complaints that come through the complaint procedures process.
