Public Records Requests

Public Records maintained by Santa Cruz METRO are available for public inspection according to the following procedures:

  1. Records are available for inspection during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm.
  2. Requests for inspection or copying of public records should be specific, focused and not interfere with the ordinary business operations of the METRO.
  3. Requests can be made orally or in writing, but METRO encourages written requests unless the Request seeks records that are maintained for immediate public inspection.
  4. METRO may refuse to disclose any records, which are exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Act (Govt. Code Section 6254 et. seq.).
  5. Inspection of records will be allowed upon conditions determined by METRO.
  6. Copies of records that are not exempt from disclosure will be made available upon pre-payment of the copying costs (.10 cents per pages)
