ADA Policies and Procedures

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) will provide reasonable modification to policies, practices, and procedures for customers with disabilities to ensure they can effectively use the agency’s transit services without discrimination on the basis of their disability.

Whenever feasible, individuals should make requests for modifications in advance of the date when the modified service is requested. The request should be specific as possible and include information on why the requested modification is needed in order to allow the individual to use the FWTA’s services. The T will make every effort to communicate determinations on modification requests in advance of when the service will be needed verbally or in writing.

Where a request for modification cannot be made and determined in advance, such as if a barrier or condition exists on fixed route or paratransit service where an individual with a disability is unaware, a determination will be made at that time.

Reasonable modification requests will be granted unless they would result in a direct threat to safety, would constitute a fundamental alteration in the service, or are not necessary for the individual to access the FWTA’s services.

To request a modification/accommodation pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, or to obtain information about procedures to file a complaint, contact the FWTA’s ADA Compliance Officer by postal mail, email or phone.
