ADA-Related Service Complaints

Victor Valley Transit welcomes comments and complaints from customers on their experiences using VVTA buses.  Customer input helps us identify areas needing improvement, and commendations are always appreciated.

All customer complaints are carefully reviewed. Those submitted by customers who experience accessibility or ADA-related issues are also reviewed for adherence to VVTA policies by ADA Compliance staff in the Civil Rights Programs Compliance Department.

Full Title VI Civil Rights Information can be found Here

(Note: Customers who wish to file a Civil Rights complaint are required to file a separate complaint using the VVTA Civil Rights Complaint Form and submit it to Customer Relations.)

To file a service complaint, customers may contact Victor Valley Transit using any of several different methods:

  • Call by telephone or TDD
  • Send a fax (760) 948-1380
  • Use an online form 
  • Send an email
  • Send a letter by U.S. Mail
  • Visit Victor Valley Transit in person

All submittal methods will result in the Customer Relations department receiving the complaint information and entering it into the customer comment database, which documents every complaint received and all related follow-up activities.  Customers with an ADA-related complaint will receive a complaint confirmation/tracking reference number, usually within the same day but no later than five (5) business days from the day VVTA receives the complaint.  If  the customer does not receive a response within the five (5) day timeframe, he or she can call the Civil Rights Program Compliance Department at (760) 948-4021 to obtain the confirmation/tracking reference number.

Responsible VVTA operating divisions or administrative departments investigate all complaints and implement any corrective actions.  Complaints involving ADA or accessibility elements receive an additional review by VVTA’s ADA Compliance staff after the division/department investigation has been completed.  After the ADA Compliance oversight review has been completed, Customer Relations will provide a written reply to the customer to the contact address provided within ninety (90) days of receiving the complaint.  All complaints are investigated within a few weeks, but some may require more extensive investigation or more time to identify corrective measures.  In any case, a written reply will be provided to the customer within ninety (90) days.

Whether our customers submit complaints about service problems or share a great experience, we welcome the opportunity to be of service.
