For more information about Title VI and our update process, read BBB’s frequently asked questions.

Big Blue Bus operates more than 50 fixed-route peak vehicles and is located in an urbanized area of more than 200,000 people and is therefore subject to the requirements set forth in the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Circular 4702.1B.

Pursuant to the requirements of FTA C 4702.1B, Big Blue Bus must establish and monitor system performance under quantitative service standards and qualitative service policies. In addition, Big Blue Bus must establish service and fare equity policies to evaluate the impacts of a major service change on minority and low-income populations.

Every three years, Big Blue Bus submits a Title VI Program to the FTA documenting compliance with the established Title VI requirements. In accordance with this submittal, Big Blue Bus will monitor and evaluate system performance relative to the service standards and policies, contained herein, no less than every three years.
