ADA Complaints

If you have a complaint about the accessibility of our transit system or believe you have been discriminated against because of your disability, you can file a written complaint. Please provide all facts and circumstances surrounding your issue or complaint so we can fully investigate the incident.

For written complaints, please include:

  • Your name, address and contact information (telephone number, email address)
  • For accessibility complaints: time, date, location and reason you believe we are not accessible to persons with disabilities
  • For complaints relating to alleged discrimination based on disability: time and date of incident, what happened and who was responsible
  • The location, Trolley or bus vehicle number and/or route if applicable

We record video in our facilities, buses and Trolleys that we will use to investigate your complaint. The retention period for this footage is 7-21 days, the sooner we receive your complaint, the more likely it is that we can review any footage related to your incident. The complaint should be filed within 180 calendar days from the time of the alleged discrimination or accessibility issue.

You can send your complaint to:

San Diego Metropolitan Transit System
Attn: Deputy General Counsel  
1255 Imperial Avenue, Suite 1000
San Diego, CA 92101
