Community Transit invites the public to comment on our Title VI Non-Discrimination Plan that addresses how the agency engages minority populations.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states 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 subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
As recipients of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds, Community Transit is required to have a Title VI program which is updated and submitted to the FTA every three years. Our proposed Title VI Non-Discrimination Plan is available online at http://www.communitytransit.org/title6 or by calling (425) 353-7433 to request a copy. The Title VI webpage provides Google Translator so it can be read in up to 65 languages.
Public comment on the proposed plan will be accepted through April 8. Comments may be submitted in one of the following ways:
- By email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- By postal mail to Community Transit, 7100 Hardeson Rd., Everett, WA 98203, Attn: Title VI Officer
