File a Complaint with FTA
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has released instructions for how to file a complaint. FTA processes complaints under the following programs:
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): prohibits discrimination based on disability
- Title VI: prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin
- Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO): prohibits discrimination toward an employee or job applicant based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age or disability. FTA investigates systemic charges of discrimination involving a transit agency’s employment policies and practices. All individual complaints of discrimination must go to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
- Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE): requires FTA funding recipients to comply with the DBE regulations (49 CFR Part 26).
