2I ADA Requirements for Rail Transportation-Commuter, Light Rail & Subways

This session will provide an overview of the ADA requirements for rail transportation including the accessibility of rail vehicles, stations and modes of boarding and alighting on the range of rail transportation systems in the U.S. The session will show some examples of what older subway and commuter systems are doing to improve accessibility for passengers with disabilities. At the same time, the session will note that even new designs in rail vehicles and new work at altered stations sometimes end up failing to meet ADA requirements or expanded interpretations of ADA requirements.
