The Federal Transit Administration is proposing guidance in the form of a circular chapter to help transportation providers ensure that the buses and rail cars they acquire meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Americans with Disabilities Act regulations. This proposed chapter on vehicle acquisition (PDF) is the first in a series of approximately 12 chapters that will compose a complete ADA circular.
