Loudoun County Seeks Input on Transit Equity Policy

An online comment period is open on a proposed change to the Loudoun County Transit civil rights policy, currently provided under the 2020-2023 Title VI Program for Local Transit and Commuter Bus service.

Loudoun County Transit proposes changing the program’s policy on major service changes, which defines the thresholds for determining whether changes to bus service would have a discriminatory impact based on race, color, or national origin and/or income. The proposed change would remove a provision defining a major service change as any that would add 15% or more average daily ridership, because the county says that cannot be accurately predicted.

A provision defining a major service change as any that would eliminate 15% or more of the average daily ridership remains.

The comment period is open through Sept. 12. Learn more and submit a comment at loudoun.gov/transitequity.

    Good lord, is everything analyzed based on race nowadays? Such a waste of taxpayer money all in the name of “equity.” I am so sick of it. This country is a laughing stock for all this appropriation, equity, and inclusion garbage. In the end, it still won’t do anything. It’s all for show by the politicians so they can use it as a talking point as if it were some sort of achievement. Meanwhile, cost of living is skyrocketing in this county and what happens? Property taxes are increasing. But let’s worry about equity within bus routes…eyeroll

    How about charging by distance but anyone from a family that qualifies for free lunch with LCPS rides for free regardless of color, race, religion or party loyalty? Second, stop running buses that aren’t efficiently occupied! Same should be true for LCPS. Nobody benefits by inefficient buses running all over Loudoun even if they are electric! 🙂 Our taxes should pay for and demand BETTER MANAGEMENT!

    Another waste of energy and money in the name of “equity”.
    Woke politicians virtue signaling and dividing us with identity politics.
    Stop the madness and vote out these radicals.
