Suntran's Commitment

Suntran is committed to serving the needs of individuals with disabilities in accordance with the American with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Suntran's Reasonable Modification processes are designed to guide Suntran staff and contract operators to make reasonable modifications/accommodations to policies, practices, and procedures pertaining to fixed-route, demand response, and paratransit services necessary to avoid discrimination. The authority will grant reasonable accommodations requests except where making accommodations would:
  1. Fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity;
  2. Create a direct threat to the health and safety of others as defined in CFR 37.3; or
  3. Where the individual with a disability is able to fully use the services, programs, or activities for their intended purpose without the modification.

 

Suntran’s Reasonable Modification Statement

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and guidance from the Federal Transit Administration, Suntran will make reasonable modifications to its policies, programs and procedures to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability and to provide accessibility to transportation.

Considerations when making a reasonable modification request:

Individuals requesting modifications must describe how the modification will enable them to use Suntran’s transportation services.

Individuals requesting modifications are not required to use the term “reasonable modification” when making a request.

Whenever feasible, requests for modifications should be made and determined in advance, before Suntran is expected to provide the modified service. For example, requests may be made through customer service inquiries.

Where a request for modification cannot practicably be made and determined in advance (e.g., because of a condition or barrier at the destination or a paratransit or fixed route trip of which the individual with a disability was unaware until arriving), Suntran’s operating personnel will make a determination of whether the modification should be provided at the time of the request. Suntran’s operators may consult with management before making a determination to grant or deny the request.

 

Reasonable modifications have limitations and cannot be granted if they:

Cause a direct threat to the health and safety of others

Create undue financial and administrative burdens

Constitute a fundamental alteration to Suntran’s transportation services

Are not necessary to fully use Suntran’s transportation services

 

If Suntran denies a request, it will attempt to identify alternative modifications that will provide accessibility to transportation services.
