Reasonable Modification for Senior Bus Transportation Policy

REASONABLE MODIFICATION POLICY FOR SENIOR BUS TRANSPORTATION

 BRICK TOWNSHIP recognizes that disabilities are as diverse as the individuals they serve and recognizes the need to make reasonable modifications to its policies, regarding assistance offered to passengers who may require additional assistance to use its services.

Under Title II of the ADA, state and local governments are required to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures where necessary to avoid discrimination.

For those riders who require additional assistance, Brick Township will endeavor to accommodate all reasonable modification requests for such assistance by following procedures outlined below:

  1. Riders must inform BRICK SENIOR SERVICES of the need and specific type of additional assistance requested at the time ride reservation is made.
  2. Reservationist will log the information within the client information system and advise Department Head of the specific rider need/request to determine the resources required to accommodate rider.
  3. The Department Head will evaluate the request and determine whether the request is reasonable to perform.
  4. If the Department Head deems the service requested to be unreasonable to perform or to repeat on a regular basis, he/she must cite specific reasoning to support the finding and inform the ADA COORDINATOR
  5. If the ADA COORDINATOR concurs with the finding of the Department Head, the rider must be so informed via phone call at least 48 hours before the requested/scheduled trip. The finding must also be communicated to the rider expeditiously by written correspondence or email.

Riders may appeal any such decisions by following established ADA grievance procedures. Complaints that a Township program, service or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the Business Administrator. A Complainant may also file a complaint with the US Department of Transportation by contacting the Department at: US Department of Transportation, Office of Civil Rights, Federal Transit Administration.
