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
(42 U.S.C. Section 2000d) 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."
Livingston Essential Transportation Service is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of its transit services on the basis of race, color, or national origin, as protected by Title VI in Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 4702.1.B.
Any person who believes that he or she, individually, or as a member of any specific class of persons, has been subjected to discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin as noted below may file a written complaint with L.E.T.S. Operations Manager using the instructions and form in the link below. If the Complainant is dissatisfied with the resolution or the case is not being resolved in a timely manner, the complaint may be submitted to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). Every effort will be made to obtain early resolution of complaints. The option of informal meeting(s) between the affected parties and the Title VI personnel may be utilized for resolutions. The Operations Manager will notify L.E.T.S. Director and/or Deputy Director of all Title VI related complaints as well as all resolutions.
