Our Policies and Procedures

Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency’s Public Transportation strives to maintain a professional, customer-friendly, low-cost transit system that provides transportation to rural residents of all ages. We pride ourselves on helping individuals by providing a safe, quality, and dependable service. It is funded by the Federal Transit Administration, TN Dept. of Transportation, local human service contracts, fares, local revenues, and in-kind contributions.

UCHRA Public Transportation abides by all applicable federal, state, and local regulations. It is our goal to provide clean, prompt, reliable, safe, and efficient service. To help us meet this goal, our vehicles and equipment are serviced at our in-house facility on a regular basis. Our drivers are properly licensed and attend regularly scheduled training sessions to help them understand and meet the needs of our passengers. We are a drug-free workplace.

Title VI Policy Statement

UCHRA Public Transportation complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq.), which states that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Any person who believes that discrimination has occurred by a state agency on the basis of race, color, or national origin, including limited English proficiency (LEP), in violation of Title VI may file a written complaint with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission. Complaints must be filed within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act. Complaints may also be filed with the state or federal agency involved or the United States Department of Justice.
