Public Participation Plan

Effective public participation is essential to the successful implementation of any planning program or project. Without the involvement of local citizens, it is difficult to design a program that effectively meets the needs of the public. A proactive public involvement process leads to a transportation system that reflects the needs and values of the community. To that end, BACTS actively seeks to incorporate the involvement of the public in its planning efforts.

BACTS Public Participation Plan

Title VI Environmental Justice and Non-Discrimination Plan 

Notice to the Public 
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

In accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other authorities, the Bangor Area Comprehensive Transportation System (BACTS) is committed to ensuring that the fundamental principles of equal opportunity are upheld in all decisions involving our employees and contractors/consultants, and to ensuring that the public-at-large is afforded access to our programs and services.

To that end, no person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any BACTS program or activity on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, income, or limited English proficiency, regardless of whether programs and activities are federally funded or not.

BACTS conducts its Title VI/Environmental Justice/Language Access Non-Discrimination Program in a team approach involving all BACTS personnel.  We are readily available to assist you with resources, guidance, and information on Title VI.
