The Federal Transit Administration is proposing guidance in the form of seven additional circular chapters to help transportation providers meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. These proposed chapters include Chapter 3 (Transportation Facilities), Chapter 6 (Fixed Route Service), Chapter 7 (Demand Responsive Service), Chapter 9 (ADA Paratransit Eligibility), Chapter 10 (Passenger Vessels), Chapter 11 (Other Modes), and Chapter 12 (Oversight, Complaints, and Monitoring).
Along with the previously proposed chapters, these chapters are proposed to be part of a series of 12 chapters that will compose a complete ADA circular. FTA published a notice in the Federal Register on November 12, 2014, seeking public comment on these proposed circular chapters. We encourage you to review the proposed chapters and provide your comments. The chapters, along with the Federal Register notice with instructions on submitting comments, may be found here: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-11-12/pdf/2014-26665.pdf
