Everything You Need to know about ADA Regulation

Posted by Shayna Johnson on 4/5/18 10:15 AM

What is the ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities Act, which is commonly referred to as ADA, became law in 1990.  The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of life including transportation and protects the rights of disabled individuals to access walkways, use of public and other facilities like restaurants, and generally enjoy the same level of access as non-disabled people. This also includes equal access to transportation. The general rule that applies under the ADA is that all limits on accessibility to transportation for disabled individuals must be removed if it's reasonable to do so.

 

 

ADA Regulation for the Bus Industry

Applies to:
  • State and local government agencies
  • Non-profit service providers that offer public accommodation
  • Privately operated entities offering certain types of educational courses
  • Privately operated transportation organizations such as airport shuttles, hotel shuttles, private buses, and taxis

In addition, facilities used by these operators are also subject to regulation for equal accessibility.  For the purposes of this blog, we will focus on the vehicles only.
