Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for Transportation Vehicles
Document Number: E8-27477
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-11-19
Agency: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) has placed in the docket and on its Web site for public review and comment a second draft of revisions to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for Transportation Vehicles. The second draft is being issued because the format has been significantly changed, provisions for over-the-road buses have been added, and changes have been made in response to comments on the first draft. The draft revisions cover only buses, over-the-road buses, and vans. Draft revisions to the guidelines for other modes will be issued later. Comments will be accepted on the second draft, and the Access Board will consider those comments prior to issuing a notice of proposed rulemaking to update the guidelines.
