Title VI Complaints
Title VI complaint forms are available for hand pick-up at METRA's Administration Building (located on the METRA campus at 814 Linwood Boulevard) or for mail delivery upon request.

Purpose of the Process: The complaint process was developed to cover all complaints filed under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for alleged discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin in any program or activity administered by METRA.

The complaint procedure does not deny the right of the complainant to file formal complaints with other State or Federal agencies or to seek private counsel for complaints alleging discrimination. Every effort will be made to obtain early resolution of complaints at the lowest level possible.

The option of a meeting between the affected party and METRA may be utilized for resolution. Any individual, group of individuals or entity that believes they have been subjected to discrimination prohibited under Title VI and related statutes may file a complaint.
