ADA Organizational Policy
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) strictly prohibits the discrimination of persons with disabilities in the provision of public transportation service. South East Texas Transit (SETT) does not deny an individual the opportunity to use general transportation system on the basis of disability, if that person is capable of using the service. SETT complies with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular 4710.1, American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Guidance as well as 49 CFR Part 27 – Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance, 49 CFR Part 37- Transportation Services for Individuals with Disabilities (ADA) and 49 CFR Part 38- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Specifications for Transportation Vehicles. SETT is committed to providing non-discriminatory service and does not discriminate as to age, sex, color, race, national origin, religion or non-religion, or disability.
Reasonable Modification Policy
South East Texas Transit shall make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability and ensure equal access to programs, benefits and services. When feasible, riders are encouraged to request modifications in advance of the modified service to allow SETT to meet the request. SETT will make every effort to communicate with riders effectively and meet all reasonable modifications. To request a modification pursuant to the ADA please contact the agency covering your area. Agency information can be found in the brochures links of this website.
Service Animal Policy
Customers may travel with a service animal on all public transportation services. Service animals are trained to work or perform tasks for persons with disabilities. Please note that the service animals must be under control at all times. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
