FOIA

About FOIA

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a Federal law that gives you the right to access any U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) records unless DOT reasonably foresees that the release of the information in those records would harm an interest protected by one or more of the nine exemptions (such as classified national security, business proprietary, personal privacy, investigative documents) or release is prohibited by law. Our responsibility is to provide you with copies of the documents, or portions of documents, you are entitled to receive under the law, and we look forward to working with you to achieve that goal.
