ECO Transit Nondiscrimination Policy  

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act requires that “No person in the United States shall, on the grounds 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.”  

Any person who believes that he/she has been aggrieved by an unlawful discriminatory practice on the basis of race, color or national origin by ECO Transit may file a complaint by completing and submitting to ECO Transit the Title VI Complaint form.

How will your complaint be handled?

ECO Transit investigates complaints received no more than 180 days after the alleged incident. ECO Transit will process complaints that are complete. Once a completed complaint is received, ECO Transit will review it to determine if ECO Transit has jurisdiction.

ECO Transit will generally complete an investigation within 90 days from receipt of a complaint. If more information is needed to resolve the case, ECO Transit may contact you. Unless a longer period is specified by ECO Transit, you will have ten (10) days from the date of the request to send the requested information. If the requested information is not received, ECO Transit may administratively close the case. A case may also be administratively closed if you no longer wish to pursue it.

After an investigation is complete, ECO Transit will send you a written letter summarizing the results of the investigation, stating the findings and advising of any corrective action to be taken as a result of the investigation. If you disagree with ECO Transit’s determination, you may request reconsideration by submitting a request in writing to ECO Transit’s Director of Transit within seven (7) days after the date of ECO Transit’s letter, stating with specificity the basis for the reconsideration. The Director of ECO Transit will notify you of the decision either to accept or reject the request for reconsideration within ten (10) days. In cases where reconsideration is granted, the Director of ECO Transit will issue a determination letter to the complainant upon completion of the reconsideration review.
