Americans with Disabilities Act Reasonable Modification


Basin Transit Service is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to qualified individuals with disabilities in all programs, services and activities. Basin Transit Service recognizes that in order to have equally effective opportunities and benefits, individuals with disabilities may need reasonable modification to policies and procedures. Basin Transit Service will adhere to all applicable federal and state laws, regulations and guidelines with respect to providing reasonable modifications, as necessary, to afford equal access to programs for persons with disabilities. Basin Transit Service does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, participation in, or receipt of services and benefits under any transit program or activity. Basin Transit Service will take appropriate steps to ensure that persons with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate.
 
No qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of Basin Transit Service, or be subject to discrimination by Basin Transit Service.

For the purposes of this section, the term reasonable accommodation shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the term 'reasonable modifications' as set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act title II regulations at 28 CFR 35.130(b)(7), and not as it is defined or interpreted for the purposes of employment discrimination under title I of the ADA (42 U.S.C. 12111-12112) and its implementing regulations at 29 CFR part 1630.

An individual is eligible to be considered to receive a reasonable modification if that individual has: a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual; a record of such impairment; or been regarded as having such impairment.
