East Brunswick Reasonable Modification Policy for Riders

East Brunswick Township ("township") recognizes that disabilities are as diverse as the individuals they serve and recognizes the need to make reasonable modifications to its policies, regarding assistance offered to passengers who may require additional assistance to use its services.

Under Title II of the "Americans with Disabilities Act," state and local governments are required to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures where necessary to avoid discrimination.

For riders who require additional assistance, the township will endeavor to accommodate all reasonable modification requests for assistance, pursuant to the following procedures:

  • Riders must inform the Department on Aging ("department") of the need and specific type of additional assistance requested at the time a ride reservation is made.
  • The reservationist will advise the dispatcher of the specific rider need/request. The dispatcher will log the information within the client information system and determine the resources required to accommodate the rider.
  • The dispatcher will evaluate the request and report to the director of the department as to whether the request is reasonable to perform.
  • If the Director of the Department on Aging deems the service requested to be unreasonable to perform or to repeat on a regular basis, the director must cite specific reasoning to support the finding and inform the dispatcher and rider.
  • If the director concurs with the finding of the dispatcher, the director must inform the rider via phone call at least 48 hours before the requested/scheduled trip. The finding must also be communicated to the rider expeditiously by written correspondence, which includes email.
  • Riders may appeal any decisions by following established ADA grievance procedures. Complaints that a township program, service or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the Director of the Department on Aging at 732-390-6896.
