Public hearings announced
for Title VI updates
No impacts on fares or service levels
VI refers to the section of the federal Civil Rights Act governing public
transportation along with other public services which receive federal funding.
Every U.S. public transit agency is required to maintain a Title VI policy
program outlining a plan to mitigate negative impacts of service changes and
fares on certain groups of people.
The program must be reviewed and updated (as necessary) every three years
and resubmitted to the Federal
Transit Administration. When programs are modified, transit agencies are
required to hold public hearings to present the changes to riders and other
stakeholders before they’re finalized.
As a result of some updates and clarification of definitions within its program,
Pace will hold a series of public hearings to present the changes and
receive feedback. Fares and service levels are not impacted
by the proposed changes.
As with all Pace public meetings, attendees are welcome to ask questions
or provide feedback about any topic related to Pace as staff will be available
to address them, however, testimony for the public hearing record must be related
to the Title VI program revisions.
The schedule of nine public hearings on the
Title VI program runs from Tuesday, February 16 through Friday, February
26. For those unable to attend who wish to provide feedback, please visit the
