Hernando County Bus Stop ADA Assessment


Title VI Notice


TITLE VI POLICY STATEMENT

As a provider of public transportation whose employees have extensive daily contact with the public, THE Bus recognizes its responsibility to the community it serves and is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination. THE Bus works to ensure nondiscriminatory transportation in support of our mission to provide effective and efficient management and delivery of public, specialized, and coordinated transportation services in Hernando County.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that "no person in the United States shall, on the ground 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." (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).

The Environmental Justice component of Title VI guarantees fair treatment for all people and provides for THE Bus to identify and address, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse effects of its programs, policies, and activities on minority and low-income populations, such as undertaking reasonable steps to ensure that Limited English Proficiency persons have meaningful access to the programs, services, and information THE Bus provides.
Environmental Justice Regulations are:

(a) To avoid, minimize, or mitigate disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects, on minority populations and low-income populations;
(b) To ensure the full and fair participation by all potentially affected communities in the transportation decision-making process;
(c) To prevent the denial of, reduction in, or significant delay in the receipt of benefits by minority and low-income populations.

Steve Diez, Transportation Planner II, has been designated as THE Bus's Title VI Liaison, responsible for civil rights compliance and monitoring to ensure non-discriminatory provision of transit services and programs. Mr. Diez is also responsible for implementing all aspects of the Title VI Program. However, along with the Transit Operator, all transportation supervisors and their staff share in the responsibility for making THE Bus's Title VI Program a success. Implementation of the Title VI Program is accorded the same priority as compliance with all other legal obligations incurred by THE Bus in its financial assistance agreements with the Department of Transportation.

To request a copy of this agency’s Title VI program please contact Steve Diez at the address below. Any person who believes they have been discriminated against under Title VI has the right to file a formal complaint within 180 days of the alleged discrimination. Individuals and organizations may file a complaint with the Federal Transit Administration’s Office of Civil Rights
www.fta.dot.gov/civilrights/title6/civil_rights_5104.html  or by filling out the THE Bus Title VI complaint form.

The complaint form should be completed, signed, and sent to the Title VI Liaison at:

Steve Diez, Transportation Planner II
Hernando County MPO
20 N. Main St. Room 262
Brooksville, FL 34601

Please read the Title VI Compliant Procedures prior submitting your form.
