    Abstract: This rulemaking would update the Access Board's existing 
accessibility guidelines for transportation vehicles that operate on 
fixed guideway systems (e.g., rapid rail, light rail, commuter rail, 
and intercity rail) and are covered by the Americans with Disabilities 
Act. The existing ``rail vehicles'' guidelines, which are located at 36 
CFR part 1192, subparts C to F and H, were initially promulgated in 
1991, and are in need of an update to, among other things, keep pace 
with newer accessibility-related technologies, harmonize with recently-
developed national and international consensus standards, and 
incorporate recommendations from the Board's Rail Vehicles Access 
Advisory Committee's 2015 Report. Revisions or updates to the rail 
vehicles guidelines would be intended to ensure that ADA-covered rail 
vehicles are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with 
disabilities. Compliance with any revised rail vehicles guidelines 
would not be required until these guidelines are adopted by the U.S. 
Department of Transportation in a separate rulemaking.
