If you believe you have been discriminated against, you must file a signed, written complaint within one hundred and eighty (180) days of the date of alleged discrimination. The complaint should include the following information:
- Your name, address, and how to contact you (i.e., telephone number, email address, etc.)
- How, when, where, and why you believe you were discriminated against. Include the location, names, and contact information of any witnesses.
The complaint may be filed in writing with Metro Customer Relations at:
Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority
Attn: Customer Relations
One Gateway Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90012-2952
Printable Form: Civil Rights Complaint Form (PDF)
Email: Customer Relations
