SacRT Seeking Comments on Title VI Service Equity Analysis
SacRT is currently seeking comments on a service equity analysis, prepared in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The report is available for review by clicking the above link.
The Title VI equity analysis examines the impacts on minority and low-income populations from the SacRT Forward project, which is a complete redesign of the SacRT bus network. SacRT has been taking comments on this project since December 10, 2018, and will continue to take comments until at least February 25, 2019. All comments received before February 18 will be presented to the SacRT Board of Directors on February 25, along with revisions to the draft plan. Members of the public are welcome to comment on the plan itself or the Title VI equity analysis, which focuses on the effects of the project on disadvantaged populations, and which is required by Federal law and SacRT policy as part of any major service changes. The SacRT Forward project is a fresh look at redesigning the entire SacRT network, with a goal of making the system simpler and easier to use. More information on SacRT Forward is available at sacrt.com/sacrtforward.
The Title VI equity analysis also examines the impacts on minority and low-income populations from improvements to weekend light rail headways which took effect on January 6, 2019. Interested parties are welcome to comment on either project, or both.
