We have just completed an update to the FAX Title VI Program and need your feedback. FAX updates this plan every three years.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin by any program that receives funding from the federal government.
As a recipient of federal funding, the City of Fresno (including both Fresno Area Express (FAX) and Handy Ride) is required to implement a Title VI Program in order to ensure that our transit and paratransit programs do not discriminate (intentionally or unintentionally) based on the color of a person’s skin, race, ethnicity, or country of origin.
Our latest update describes the actions we have taken and are continuing to take to prevent discrimination and implement Title VI requirements within FAX and Handy Ride.
The draft 2019 Title VI Program is available for public review and comment until 5 p.m. on Friday, September 20, 2019.
Please send your comments to Jeff Long at firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, September 20, 2019.
