USDOT Extends Comment Period for Public Input on Improving Accessibility of Transit Facilities for People with Disabilities

Published on: January 7, 2024

To continue to promote equity in public transportation, the U.S. Department of Transportation is seeking public input on ways to improve the accessibility of public transportation facilities for people with disabilities. The Department recently extended through February 20, 2024 the period for people to submit comments to its Request for Information (RFI).

The Department strives to provide equitable access so that people with disabilities are able to use and navigate public transit with the same ease, reliability, and independence as any other user. Input from transit riders, adaptive technology professionals, and the transit industry is critically important in informing USDOT as it contemplates potential enhancements to the ADA standards.
