Transportation is a vital link that allows people with disabilities to enjoy and participate in the many aspects of society, including work, commerce and leisure activities. Both Federal and State law address transportation specifying that no entity shall discriminate against an individual with a disability in connection with the provision of transportation service.
Both private and public entities are subject to the access laws and they address not only vehicles, but also stations. Public transportation provided by private entities, such as buses, trains and taxicabs is subject to accessibility requirements.
Information on compliance can be found by following the links below for each specific law.
