TITLE VI POLICY REVIEW

RIPTA is inviting the public to review and comment on draft policies to be used to evaluate impacts of our major service changes and fare changes. The intent of the proposed policies is to provide assurance that any changes in transit service and fares are made in compliance with Title VI, which was enacted as part of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.
