Title VI


Title VI

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI) prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs that receive federal funding.  BART is committed to complying with the requirements of Title VI in all of its federally funded programs and activities.  BART is required to submit a Title VI Civil Rights Program to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) every three years. The Title VI Program documents that services and benefits are provided in a nondiscriminatory basis and must be approved by BART’s Board of Directors prior to submission to FTA.


BART-to-Oakland International Airport Title VI Equity Analysis

The BART-to-Oakland International Airport Project (Project) is a 3.2 mile Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) system which will provide a rapid transit link between the Coliseum Station and the Oakland International Airport Station (OAK). Currently, the AirBART bus service transports passengers between Coliseum Station and the Oakland International Airport. The Project is a new service and once revenue service begins, AirBART will cease operations.  For more information on the Project please visit the Oakland Airport Connector project page.

The attached report BART to Oakland Intl Airport Title VI Equity Analysis.pdf conforms to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Title VI Circular and determines whether the Project’s fare and service will have a disparate impact on minority populations or a disproportionate burden on low-income populations based on BART’s Disparate Impact and Disproportionate Burden Policy (DI/DB Policy). The attached Final DI.DB Policy.pdf  was adopted by the BART Board on July 11, 2013.

Hard copies of the report are available upon request to the Office of Civil Rights:

300 Lakeside Drive, 16th Floor, Oakland, CA 94612.

Telephone (510)287-4709 Fax (510)464-7587

Email:officeofcivilrights@bart.gov

The final report will be brought to the BART Board for approval at the May 8, 2014 Board meeting, at which time the public may also provide comments.

Title VI Fare Equity Analysis Report 

This February, the BART Board approved extending BART’s productivity-adjusted inflation-based fare increase program for fare increases in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020. The first increase valued at 5.2% is scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2014 and is estimated to generate $17 million in the first full year.  Pursuant to the Board’s direction, CPI Based Fare Increase Restatement of Intent 032213.the fare revenue generated by this increase will be put into a separate fund that can only go to help fund BART’s highest priority capital renovation projects, including new rail cars, train control system, and the Hayward Maintenance Complex.

In February, findings from the preliminary “Title VI Assessment for the Extension of the Productivity-Adjusted Inflation-Based Fare Increase Program” were submitted to the Board and posted on BART.gov.  These findings were to be updated by applying thresholds from BART’s Disparate Impact and Disproportionate Burden Policy (“Policy”), which was then under development and subsequently adopted by the Board in July 2013.  Prior to the January 1, 2014 fare increase, the Title VI analysis for the 2014 increase must be finalized and submitted for Board approval.

The attached report CPI T6 Report.pdf  adds a comparison of protected to non-protected riders and compares analysis results to the appropriate thresholds.  The updated assessment concludes that neither the 2014 inflation-based fare increase nor preliminary projections for the 2016, 2018, and 2020 increases would result in a disparate impact on minority groups or a disproportionate burden on low-income groups.  Title VI analyses for the 2016, 2018 and 2020 fare increases will be updated and finalized once the inflation percentage increase is known for those years and after public participation is solicited; implementation of those fare increases will be subject to Board approval of the corresponding and finalized Title VI analysis
