SCUSA Transportation was recognized with a Safety Award by the North Carolina Public Transportation Association. This award is for having the least amount of accidents for a Community Transportation System with less than 500,000 (miles driven) annually. The safety award is based on a formula that evaluates traffic accidents, passenger incidents, passenger injuries and safety offenses per passenger trip. SCUSA Transportation traveled 313,790 miles and provided 62,587 trips. This award shows the hard work and dedication to safety displayed daily by each driver.
The North Carolina Public Transportation Association (NCPTA) serves as the primary voice of the public transportation industry in the State. The award was given during their Annual Conference in Wilmington.

- Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act
- Title VI of the Civil Rights Act
Requests for Reasonable Modifications of Policies and Procedures
SCUSA is committed to ensuring a reliable, accessible experience for all customers. If, due to a disability, you are not able to fully utilize SCUSA programs and services (demand response and subscriptions) because of a policy or procedure that SCUSA has established, you may submit a request for a modification of the policy or procedure. To request a modification, complete a Request for Modification of Policy/Procedure Form, which is available online at www.stanlycountync.gov/transportation/ or by calling 704-986-3790 or TTY 1-800-735-2962. All requests for reasonable modifications to SCUSA policies or procedures will be considered on an individual basis. Please note that SCUSA may be unable to accommodate requests for modifications which would: (1) result in a fundamental alteration to the nature of the service; (2) create a direct threat to the health or safety of others, and; (3) create an undue financial or administrative burden. Requests for modifications might also not be granted if the SCUSA determines that the service can be fully utilized without the requested change. In the event that a barrier to access exists, but the requested modification cannot be granted, the SCUSA will, to the maximum extent possible, assist in determining other possible actions that might be taken to provide access to its programs and services.
Reasonable Modification of Policies and Procedures
Individuals with disabilities may ask SCUSA to modify a policy or procedure if they feel the policy or procedure is discriminatory or prevents them from fully utilizing SCUSA services. SCUSA will review these requests and will modify policies unless it finds that:
- The person can fully utilize the service without the requested modification (i.e., it is for convenience only).
- The change would create a direct threat to the safety of others.
- The change would fundamentally alter the nature of the service.
- The change would cause an undue financial or administrative burden.
SCUSA encourages people to request such modifications in advance when possible. To request a modification of a policy or procedure in advance, complete the ADA Reasonable Modification Form, which is available online at http://www.stanlycountync.gov/transportation/ or by calling 704-986-3790 or TTY: 1-800-735-2962.
SCUSA will be guided by examples in Appendix E of 49 CFR Part 37 (http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idxc=ecfr&SID=d315855e2f2c9f940970f4c191349c12&rgn=div5&view=text&node=49:220.127.116.11.27&idno=49#ap49.1.37_1215.e) when making decisions on requests for modifications of policies.
If SCUSA denies a request, it will consider other reasonable actions or approaches that might be able to meet the person’s needs.
SCUSA has designated the Transit Director to coordinate the acceptance and review of requests for reasonable modifications of policies. This policy will be communicated to the public on the SCUSA website and in printed information about our services.
