Intercity Transit commits to using minority, women, and disadvantaged businesses and small businesses (whether or not included in the minority, women, or disadvantaged categories) to the maximum extent possible, as outlined in our 2017-19 disadvantaged business enterprise plan. Our Draft 2019-21 disadvantaged business plan is scheduled to go into effect on October 1, 2019. We encourage all such businesses to apply. We remind interested firms to afford potential business partners an equal, non-discriminatory opportunity to compete for business as joint venture partners or subcontractors. We are interested in firms that demonstrate a commitment to equal employment opportunity and encourage firms to employ a workforce that reflects the region's diversity and to adhere to non-discrimination provisions. For more information on how to become certified as a disadvantaged business enterprise or small business enterprise, please contact the Office of Minority and Women's Business Enterprises. Feel free to contact our Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Liaison Officer if you have any questions or comments.
