Civil Rights

The FTA Office of Civil Rights (TCR) is the standard bearer for equity in the public transit system sector. As the sole office for ensuring that the Civil Rights protections afforded by law and regulation are enforced for all FTA programs and recipients, TCR works towards establishing public transportation that is free of discrimination and accessible for all by working with internal and external stakeholders.

TCR’s vision is to be the preeminent Civil Rights office within the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) by incorporating innovative technology and solution orientated approaches to Civil Rights in an ever changing world.
