Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Circular

Since passage of the ADA in 1990, transit agencies have worked to make America’s public transit system accessible for people with disabilities. As transit agencies continue to improve accessibility, many generate questions or receive public inquiries about complying with the comprehensive ADA regulations.
