Civil Rights and Title VI Protection | Valley Metro

At Valley Metro we do our very best to ensure that all passengers, regardless of race, color or national origin, obtain the same treatment and experience as everyone who comes aboard.

Complaints for alleged non-compliance with Title VI and related statutes may be lodged with Valley Metro Customer Service. Any such complaint must be filed within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act (or latest occurrence).
