... Glossary 75   Title VI Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; in the context of public transit, the FTA provides guidance to fixed-route transit providers to ensure "the impacts of service and fare changes are not discriminatory and are distributed equitably to minority and low-income populations." Transit agencies with 50 or more fixed-route vehicles in peak service in large urbanized areas (population over 200,000) are instructed to develop written procedures "to evaluate, prior to implementation, any and all service changes that exceed the transit provider's major service change threshold, as well as all fare changes, to determine whether those changes will have a discriminatory impact based on race, color, or national origin." For more information, see FTA 2018.
