Limited English Proficiency Plan

LADOT Transit has developed this Limited English Proficiency Plan to identify reasonable steps for providing language assistance to persons with limited English proficiency or LEP who wish to access the transportation services provided by LADOT Transit. Executive Order 13166, defines LEP persons as those who do not speak English as their primary language and have limited ability to read, speak, write or understand English. LADOT Transit has made consistent efforts to identify LEP persons and reach out to these groups as well as communicate with this population. This plan will build upon those previous efforts.
