Metro wants feedback on proposed changes to equity policies

metro_bus_51021.jpg

Cincinnati Metro is holding two public meetings Tuesday and Wednesday to get feedback on proposed changes to certain policies.

The Federal Transit Administration requires a review every three years for policies under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which offers protections for minority and low-income populations. It requires Metro to make sure service changes don’t have a disproportionate effect on those communities.

Metro officials are proposing a simpler version of policies that aim to make them easier to understand. Here's how you can have your voice heard:

Virtual public meetings

Tuesday, July 12, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Wednesday, July 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Register online: go-metro.com/title-vi

Written public comment

You can share written comments until Friday, July 13, at 11:59 p.m.

Email: RouteComments@go-metro.com

Fax: 513-632-9202
