Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires that “no person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
Pursuant to the Federal Transit administration (FTA) publication C 4702.1A, Metro must submit an updated Title VI Plan every three years to explain and demonstrate its intended efforts to fulfill these requirements. Each new plan must be approved by Metro's oversight committee, the Madison Transit and Parking Commission (TPC), before being submitted to the FTA for final approval.
Metro has updated its Fare Equity Policy, which is the only major change to the plan this year.
Please give us your feedback on both the Fare Equity Policy and the entire Title VI Plan, both available at the links below.
