Reasonable Modification Policy

Region 2 Transit follows all requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including amendments to clarify existing rules under 49 CFR Part 27 and 37 as implemented in July 2015.  Per this final rule, Region 2 Transit is required to make reasonable modifications or accommodations to our policies and procedures to ensure individuals with disabilities have equal access to Region 2 Transit's services.

Region 2 Transit will make reasonable modifications to its policies and procedures when necessary to avoid discrimination and ensure accessibility for people with disabilities.  Reasonable modifications do have limitations are not intended to:

  • Cause a direct threat to the health and safety of others
  • Create undue financial and administrative burdens
  • Constitute a fundamental alteration in services
  • Not necessary to provide equal access to an Region 2 Transit service

Considerations when making a reasonable modification request:

  • Individuals requesting modifications shall describe what they need in order to use the service by completing our Reasonable Modification Request form
  • Individuals requesting modifications are not required to use the term “reasonable modification” when making the request
  • Whenever feasible, requests for modifications shall be made and determined in advance, before the transportation provider is expected to provide the modified service
  • Where a request for modification cannot be made and determined in advance (because of a condition or barrier at the destination of an Region 2 Transit service of which the individual was not aware), Region 2 Transit shall make a determination of whether the modification should be provided at the time of the request

Whenever possible, please make the request in advance, before the modification is needed to access the service.  Region 2 Transit will make every effort, to the maximum extent feasible, to ensure that a person with a disability has access to, and benefits from, its services.
 
To request reasonable modifications based on a disability please complete the Reasonable Modification Request form or contact Region 2 Transit Administrator, Kevin Kramer, at (641) 423-0491 ext. 17, kkramer@niacog.org or mail to 525 6th St SW, Mason City, IA 50401.   Region 2 Transit will review the request in accordance with its reasonable modification plan.  All information will be kept strictly confidential.
