Notice under the Americans with Disabilities Act 
Santa Clara Valley Transportation Agency

In accordance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”), the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Agency (VTA) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.

Employment: VTA does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Effective Communication: VTA will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in VTA’s programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modification to Policies and Procedures: VTA will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in VTA vehicles, transit facilities, and administrative offices even when pets are generally prohibited.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of VTA, should contact:

ADA Coordinator
Office of Diversity and Inclusion
Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority
3331 North First Street, B1
San Jose, CA 95134
(408) 321-2300
 
Please contact the ADA Coordinator as soon as possible but no later than 72 hours before the scheduled event.

The ADA does not require VTA to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its program or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a program, service, or activity of VTA is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to VTA’s ADA Coordinator (contact information above).

VTA will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.
