What is Title VI? 
 
Butte County Association of Governments (BCAG) and Butte Regional Transit (BRT or B-Line) grants all citizens equal access to its transportation services. BCAG and BRT are committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its services on the basis of race, color, or national origin as protected by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its associated rules, regulations and ammendments.
 
Public Notices about this policy are posted in English, Hmong and Spanish at the BCAG/BRT administration office, on all fixed route and paratransit vehicles, at the transit centers in Chico and Oroville and at stops and shelters when appropriate space is available. This fulfills the intent of the agencies to have all citizens remain aware of their rights to such access. The Title VI Program document and this website are designed to serve as educational tools for citizens to understand the civil rights laws that protect their benefit of B-Line programs and services.
 
Please note that Title VI regulations apply to issues of race, color or national origin. Complaints relating to other protected classes, such as religion or gender, are processed via other avenues. More information is available from the national Office of Civil Rights (OCR).
