Accessibility to MTC’s Website
We are pleased to provide an electronic medium for accessing information about our programs and services. If you have any suggestions for improving accessibility features of our Web site, please contact our web master, Brenda Kahn, at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In compliance with applicable requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq.; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, 29 U.S.C. § 794; and Section 16 of the Federal Transit Act, as amended, 49 U.S.C. § 5310(f); MTC provides the following assistance to the visually and hearing impaired:
Hearing Impaired Visitors – Requests for Transcripts:
The Metropolitan Transportation Commission regularly posts live audio streams from meetings of the full Commission and selected committees on our Web site, and archives them on the site for approximately 30 days after the meetings take place. In addition, from time to time we videotape a meeting or workshop, and post the videotape on our web site. If you are hearing impaired and need a transcript of these materials, please contact the MTC Public Information Office at TDD/TTY (510) 817-5769, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Information for Users Who Are Visually Impaired:
Our web site has been improved to be used with screen readers. Because we have a navigation bar at the lefthand side of most pages, and because a few pages feature multiple columns, you may need to reformat pages into a single column. Most images on our web site are accompanied by alternate text image tags that should be readable if your browser supports the alt-text function. Each major item on the navigation bar is also listed on a site index that can be found here. We will link to the site index from the home page as well as from most other pages.
If a web page has an on-line form or document that is not accessible, please contact the MTC Public Information Office to request an alternate format. MTC’s Public Information Office can be reached at (510) 817-5787, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you have a concern regarding MTC’s compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), please contact MTC’s manager of Administrative Services, Teri L. Green, via e-mail at email@example.com or at (510) 817-5750.
