The RTC will consider requests for reasonable modifications to policies, practices, and procedures made by an individual with a disability to enable him or her to utilize RTC Transportation Services. Below is a brief summary of the process.
Policy & Procedures
- A customer requesting a reasonable modification will be required to describe what the customer believes is needed in order to use the RTC transportation service(s). The requestor is not required to use the term “reasonable modification” when making a request. The request for modification can be for any of the transportation services provided by the RTC, i.e. paratransit, fixed route, etc.
- Whenever possible, the RTC asks that customers make requests for modifications and provide the RTC an opportunity to determine whether such request will be granted in advance, i.e., before the RTC is expected to provide the modified service:
- Requests may be made during the ADA paratransit eligibility process
- Requests made through eligibility will have determinations processed along with the eligibility determinations within twenty one (21) days for new applicants and with the renewal determination for requests made during a recertification process
- Request may be made through customer service inquires 702-228-4800
- [Designated RTC staff will make a determination within one (1) to seven(7) business days for requests made via customer service inquiries
- Requests may be made through RTC’s customer comment process 702-228-4800
- Designated RTC staff will make a determination within one (1) to seven (7) business days for requests made through the customer comment process
- Requests may be made during the ADA paratransit eligibility process
Requests for modifications of RTC policies and practices may be denied only on one or more of the following grounds:
- Granting the request would fundamentally alter the nature of RTC’s transportation service, programs, or activities
- Granting the request would create a direct threat to the health or safety of others
- Without the requested modification, the individual with a disability is able to fully use RTC’s services, programs, or activities for their intended purpose.
If your request for a reasonable modification is denied you may file a complaint. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) has established a process for investigating and resolving complaints alleging discrimination based on disability regarding services, programs, and facilities pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as implemented in 49 CFR Parts 27, 37, and 38 and 28 CFR Part 35 (for programs and facilities). This Notice and Grievance Procedure is adopted pursuant to 28 CFR 35.107 and 49 CFR 27.13 both entitled, Designation of responsible employee and adoption of grievance procedures.
