[ARCHIVED] MBTA Title VI Public Meetings


The MBTA public engagement team is holding upcoming public meetings about the proposed Title VI policy changes. Riders and community members are invited to attend and give feedback. 

Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in any program or activity that receives Federal funds or other Federal financial assistance.

In March, the MBTA will hold three meetings about about proposed changes the T would like to make to two important Title VI policies: 

  • First, the MBTA is proposing updates to its Disparate Impact and Disproportionate Burden Policy (“DI/DB Policy”), which sets the parameters around when and how the MBTA conducts a fare or service equity analysis.  
  • The MBTA is also proposing updates to its Public Engagement Plan (“PEP”) to include an expansion of the T’s virtual public engagement strategies and more. 
  • Riders are asked to submit their feedback by email, phone, or mail through Friday, April 14, 2023, and may attend any of the following public meetings taking place in March where feedback will be collected:
