Title VI and Public Transit

Please note: This course will sunset after March 2023. The course is being revised and will be divided into two separate sessions, one as an introductory Overview and the other as an Advanced course. 


This course will help practitioners appreciate the importance of transit equity considerations during the day-to-day life of transit planning, management, and operations. It is designed to provide accurate information on a variety of equity considerations an agency is exposed to on a daily basis.


Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  • Use this course, subsequent case studies, and exercises as planning tools to identify potential impacts of proposed actions on low-income and minority populations, as well as seniors, youth, and persons with disabilities.
  • Understand how equity issues in transportation planning and operations will lead to better service, planning, and delivery.
  • Apply course content to help ensure equitable distribution of public transportation resources to the benefit of public transportation providers and users.
