Reporting an Accessibility or Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Related Complaint involving Muni Operations
All Muni accessibility complaints may be reported through 311 or with our online Muni feedback form, and they will be investigated by appropriate staff.
For accessibility related complaints which involve a Muni operator, you may request a courtesy accessibility review when you file your complaint. SFMTA staff responding to your complaint will attempt to identify the operator using the information you provide. If the operator is identified, you may choose to attend a review mtg. with the operator, their union representative and a neutral hearing officer. The hearing officer will hear testimony from all parties and make a determination, which will be communicated back to you in writing. Whether or not you attend the review, your complaint will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken.
Eff. 3/20: Due to the current shelter-in-place order, the SFMTA has suspended courtesy Accessibility Reviews (formerly ADA Hearings) until further notice. Incident details will be documented and provided to SFMTA Accessible Services and corresponding Transit Division Management for further review, investigation and appropriate action.
When reporting a complaint, please do your best to get as much information as possible about the incident. In addition to the description of the incident and your contact information, please provide the following:
Please note: Anonymous reports will be investigated, but are not eligible for Accessibility Reviews.
