County Connection service policies are enacted to ensure equitable service delivery to the diverse communities we serve. Any major service or fare change must undergo a service or fare equity analysis that compares impacts borne by low-income and minority populations and the service area population as a whole. The objective of County Connection’s Title VI program is to:
- Ensure that the level and quality of transportation service is provided without regard to race, color, or national origin.
- Identify and address, as appropriate, disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effects, including social and economic effects of programs and activities on minority populations and low-income populations.
- Promote full and fair participation of all affected populations in transportation decision-making.
- Prevent the denial, reduction, or delay in benefits related to programs and activities that benefit minority populations or low-income populations.
- Ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by persons with limited English proficiency.
