Provide feedback on how DART collects public input
DART is collecting feedback as it updates its Title VI program. Title VI is part of the Civil Rights Act that ensures people are not excluded from involvement in an organization or use of its services because of their race, color or national origin. DART is required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to update its Title VI Program and submit it for review every three years.

DART will share background information on its Title VI program and its Public Participation Plan at a public meeting. Riders are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide feedback to DART staff about how they like to receive DART information and how they like to provide input on changes DART may be considering.

Changes to DART’s Title VI program
DART is not making any major changes to its Title VI program as part of this review. However, DART is using this review as an opportunity to ensure it is effectively reaching diverse populations, including those that are racially diverse, low-income populations, and those who may have Limited English Proficiency (LEP).
Along with attending our meeting, we invite you to review the current Public Participation Plan and provide comments to DART about any opportunities for improvement you see to communicate with riders and the public. Comments can be submitted to DART Customer Service at DART Central Station, by calling 515-283-8100 or by email.
