FTA releases Civil Rights compliance review of LA Metro

Recommended Posts

LACMTA - The Federal Transit Administration on Monday released its Civil Rights Title VI compliance review of Metro; the review can be downloaded here as a Word document.


The review found that Metro did not fully follow federal regulations and guidance when the agency made service and fare changes. The review dates back to 2009.


Here is the corrective action plan that Metro has assembled in response to the review and has sent to the FTA, which helps fund some Metro projects and programs and therefore conducts periodic reviews. And here is a report from Metro staff to the agency’s Board of Directors.


The release of the compliance review is the reason that Metro decided Friday to postpone service changes that were supposed to go into effect Sunday. Agency officials said that some of those changes need further analysis to ensure they followed FTA rules.


Below is the statement that Metro released about the FTA’s review on Friday, when the Los Angeles Times first reported it.


The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) recently audited Metro for compliance with federal Title VI Civil Rights regulations. The review is similar to those conducted at other major transit agencies around the country as FTA increases its focus on Title VI with the expectation that the transit industry must do a better job of compliance.


The FTA audit of Metro was not an investigation to determine the merit of any specific discrimination complaints filed against Metro. However, it did find deficiencies with the methodologies and processes that Metro uses to assess impacts of fare and service changes on minorities and low-income people.
