Title VI Equity Analysis Approval
On May 22, the Board of Trustees approved the UTA August 2024 Title VI Equity Analysis, performed in accordance with the Federal Transit Administration’s Circular 4702.1B. This process aims to ensure that service and fare changes do not disproportionately impact minority or low-income populations, upholding our commitment to equitable service delivery without discrimination based on race, color, or national origin.

Outreach and Education
Leading up to August Change Day, UTA will conduct outreach and education efforts to inform communities within our service area about the upcoming changes. We aim to ensure that all riders are well-informed and prepared for these updates.
