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.

  • State and local government agencies
  • Non-profit service providers that offer public accommodation
  • Privately operated entities offering certain types of educational courses
