Public transportation providers that receive federal funds are required to submit an updated Title VI Program to FTA every three years. Agencies must document that they are not discriminating on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin, and describe the proactive steps they are taking to ensure they do not discriminate in the future.
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) and Fairfax Connector operate programs and services without regard to race, color, and national origin in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.
Any person who believes she or he has been aggrieved by any unlawful discriminatory practice under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act may file a complaint with the Fairfax County Office of Human Rights and Equity Programs (OHREP) within 180 days of the date of the alleged discrimination.
The Office of Human Rights and Equity Programs is located at 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, Virginia 22035. For procedures to file a complaint, call 703-877-5600, TTY 711, visit http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/ohrep/epd/.
A complaint can also be filed directly with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) via the United States Postal Service by mailing to FTA's Office of Civil Rights, Attention: Title VI Program Coordinator, East Building, 5th Floor-TCR, 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE, Washington, DC 20590.
