2015 Limited English Proficiency Plan
The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) welcomed comments on an updated Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Plan from June 12 through July 13, 2015. The BRTB voted to approve this plan on Tuesday, July 28.
The intent of this plan is to ensure that where substantial numbers of residents of the Baltimore region exist who do not speak or read English proficiently, these LEP individuals have access to the planning process and published information, and that public notification is provided in other languages. The plan includes a four-part analysis and lays out how the BRTB will provide services to LEP individuals.
The LEP plan is available online in PDF format in either English or Spanish. In addition, these PDFs can be translated to other languages by visiting translate.google.com and clicking on the translate a document hyperlink. From there, you will then be prompted to upload the PDF and select your target language. Please note this feature may not be enabled on all mobile devices at this time. Print versions are also available at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council’s Regional Information Center (RIC.)
