Transportation

Q. What the ADA's requirements for public transit buses?

A. The Department of Transportation has issued regulations mandating accessible public transit vehicles and facilities. The regulations include requirements that all new fixed-route, public transit buses be accessible and that supplementary paratransit services be provided for those individuals with disabilities who cannot use fixed-route bus service.

Q. Does the ADA cover air transportation?

A. Discrimination by air carriers in areas other than employment is covered by the ADA but rather by the Air Carrier Access Act (49 U.S.C. 1374 (c)).
