Fare & Service Equity Analyses
CATS will conduct a fare change review on proposed fare or fare media type changes, and major service changes to determine if the proposed changes would have disproportionate adverse effects on minority and low-income populations.
FTA guidelines allow the implementation of fare changes or major service changes that would have disproportionate adverse effects on minority and low-income populations, provided the recipient demonstrates that the proposed change meets a substantial need that is in the public interest and that the alternatives would have worse adverse effects than the proposed change. CATS shall consider the degree of adverse effects, and analyze those effects, when planning fare or major service changes.
