508 Compliance

Creating Section 508 Compliant Documents and Presentations

All published documents (including graphics) must comply with and be accessible in accordance with current requirements/interpretation of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as Amended. All documentation must be approved by FTA before distribution to the public and prepared in a format specified by FTA. Recipients of federal funds are responsible for consulting sources such as the Access Board and the Section 508 website http://www.section508.gov/.  Please read more about Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act as amended in 1998 on our Accessibility page.
