American With Disabilities Act (ADA) Reasonable Modifications

On March 13, 2015, the Federal Department of Transportation issued a Final Rule affecting 49 CFR Parts 27 and 37:  Transportation for Individuals With Disabilities; Reasonable Modification of Policies and Practices.  The purpose behind this final rule is, “…specifically to provide that transportation entities are required to make reasonable modifications/accommodations to policies, practices and procedures to avoid discrimination and ensure that their programs are accessible to individuals with disabilities.”  The modification requires Federal funding recipients make reasonable accommodations in policies, practices or procedures, when necessary, to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability unless recipients can demonstrate that making the accommodations would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity or result in an undue financial and administrative burden.  This requirement, applying to both fixed-route and paratransit services, is effective July 13, 2015.

RRTA’s Reasonable Modification request process is consistent with the ruling: (1) individuals requesting modifications are asked to describe what they need in order to use the service; (2) individuals are not required to use the term “reasonable modification” when requesting modifications or accommodations; (3) when feasible, requests for modifications should be made in advance; (4) operating personnel may make a determination for modification at the time of service – management may be consulted to grant/deny the request.  Requests may be submitted to the Reasonable Modification Officer, 45 Erick Road, Lancaster, PA 17601 or be email info@redrosetransit.com or by phone (717) 397-4246.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Modificación Razonable

El 13 de marzo de 2015, el Departamento Federal de Transporte emitió una norma definitiva que afecta a 49 CFR Partes 27 y 37: Transporte para Personas con Discapacidad; Modificación Razonable de Políticas y Prácticas. El propósito detrás de esta regla final es: “… específicamente para disponer que se necesitan entidades de transporte para hacer modificaciones razonables / alojamiento en las políticas, prácticas y procedimientos para evitar la discriminación y garantizar que sus programas sean accesibles a las personas con discapacidad.” La modificación requiere beneficiarios federales de financiación hacen ajustes razonables en las políticas, prácticas o procedimientos, cuando sea necesario, para evitar la discriminación por motivos de discapacidad a menos beneficiarios pueden demostrar que lo que el alojamiento alteraría fundamentalmente la naturaleza del servicio, programa o actividad o dar lugar a una carga financiera y administrativa excesiva. Este requisito, aplicando tanto a ruta fija y servicios de transporte informal, es efectiva 13 de julio 2015.
Razonable proceso de solicitud de modificación de RRTA es coherente con la sentencia: (1) las personas que solicitan modificaciones se les pide que describan lo que necesitan para utilizar el servicio; (2) los individuos no están obligados a utilizar el término “modificación razonable” al solicitar modificaciones o adaptaciones; (3) cuando sea posible, las solicitudes de modificaciones deben hacerse con anticipación; (4) El personal que operan pueden hacer una determinación para la modificación en el momento de la gestión del servicio puede consultarse a conceder / denegar la solicitud.
Las solicitudes podrán presentarse a la razonable Modificación Oficial, 1700 45 Erick Road, Lancaster, PA 17601 o por correo electrónico info@redrosetransit.com o por teléfono (717) 397-4246. Para obtener más información, visite http://www.redrosetransit.com
