BRITE’s Transit System Is For Everyone.

BRITE Transit gives public notice of its policy to assure full compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and all related statutes. BRITE Transit is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of transit services on the basis of race, color or national origin, as protected by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI requires recipients of Federal funds to provide information to the public regarding the recipient’s obligations under DOT’s Title VI regulations and apprise members of the public of the protections against discrimination afforded to them by Title VI.

Any person who believes that he or she has, individually, or as a member of any specific class of persons, been excluded from the participation in, been denied the benefits of, or been otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which BRITE Transit provides assistance, and believes the discrimination is based upon race, color, or national origin has the right to file a formal complaint.
