Title VI Major Service Change Policy Sessions


MDOT MTA is holding three virtual presentation and Q&A sessions on proposed changes to our Title VI Major Service Change Policy, which determines when changes to our service require Service Equity Analyses. In light of lessons learned during the pandemic and changes that have occurred across the transit industry, MDOT MTA is currently updating its Major Service Change Policy, a component of our Title VI Program, a federal requirement that requires non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin, including ensuring meaningful access for Limited English Proficient (LEP) persons. As part of this session, MDOT MTA is seeking feedback from the public regarding, what constitutes a "major service change" to MTA services, including Core Bus, Commuter Bus, Metro Subway, Light Rail, and MARC? When a "major service change" is proposed for implementation, the agency must examine potential effects on minorities and low-income populations.

In an effort to provide a safe, convenient, and accessible opportunities for participation MDOT MTA will be offering three virtual sessions. Dial-in information for participation is below. We will be soliciting feedback on proposed policies from those participating in the webinar session. We'll be providing a brief presentation on this topic and comparing the provisions of our current policy with the proposed provisions for new policies and appreciate your feedback!
