SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a letter submitted to the docket dated 
November 18, 2021, the American Public Transportation Association 
(APTA), on behalf of more than 1,300 member organizations, requested a 
30-day extension of the comment period seeking input on Title VI 
implementation published in the Federal Register on November 3, 2021 
(86 FR 60735). As justification for this extension, APTA cited the 
upcoming holidays, increased grant activity with the recent signing of 
the recent infrastructure law, and ongoing responses to the COVID-19 
pandemic as pulling transit systems in many directions. APTA believes 
an extension of time would facilitate its members' ability to formulate 
thoughtful and proactive comments responsive to FTA's request for 
information.
    Given the importance of Title VI implementation and the desire for 
a robust dialogue on a possible update of FTA's Title VI Circular, FTA 
believes an extension of time is justified, and an additional 30 days 
in which to submit comments is adequate. FTA is not republishing the 
Questions to the Public in this document. Instead, please refer to the 
November 3, 2021 RFI (86 FR 60735) to view the original questions 
regarding Title VI implementation.

Deputy Associate Administrator for Civil Rights.
