RGRTA Title VI Standards & Policies


Rgrta title vi standards policies1

RGRTA Title VI Standards & Policies

  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects against discrimination on the basis of race, color, and/or national origin.

  • As required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), RGRTA maintains standards and policies related to:

    • Major service changes

    • Disparate impact

    • Disproportionate burden

    • System-wide service standards


Major service change policy

Major Service Change Policy

  • Major service changes include:

    • Service hours

    • Length of a route

    • Impacts to 10 or more customers per trip

  • Before RGRTA makes any fare change or change to its service, we will seek customer and community input.


Disparate impact policy

Disparate Impact Policy

  • Fare changes and major service changes impact our customers. RGRTA’s policy is to insure that such changes do not adversely impact any minority group more than 25% greater than any other group. If so, RGRTA will look at alternatives and try to lessen that impact.


Disproportionate burden policy

Disproportionate Burden Policy

  • Fare changes and major service changes impact our customers. RGRTA’s policy is to insure that such changes do not adversely impact low income customers more than 25% greater than any other group. If so, RGRTA will look at alternatives and try to lessen that impact.


Rgrta service standards

RGRTA Service Standards

Every time we plan a route or service, we consider the following:

  • Headway

  • On Time Performance

  • Vehicle Load

  • Service Availability


Headway

Headway

  • Headway = how frequently the service is provided

    • Routes are required to meet a minimum headway to provide a convenient and effective service for customers.

    • Minimum and maximum headways are established based on the time of day and the type of route


On time performance

On-Time Performance

On-time performance enables RGRTA to maintain a reasonable, high-quality service for customers

  • A bus is considered ‘on-time’ if it arrives between 2:59 early and 5:59 after the scheduled arrival time

  • RGRTA’s minimum on-time performance is 85%.

  • On-time performance is recorded daily for each route.

  • 2013 Actual On-Time Performance: 89%!!

  • 2014 Goal: 91%


Vehicle load

Vehicle Load

Vehicle Load = the minimum and maximum number of passengers per bus, per route type and time of day.

Example: 40’ bus at peak time period:


Service availability

Service Availability

RGRTA strives to provide service that is easy to access:

  • Urban Routes:

    • 95% of residents can walk to a bus stop within ¼ mile, or approximately 5 minutes

    • 4 bus stops per mile

  • Suburban Routes:

    • 95% of residents can drive to a bus stop within 2.5 miles, or approximately 5 minutes

    • Bus stops no more than 2 miles apart
