On February 4, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) approved revised Disability Law Guidance concerning wheelchairs and transportation. This replaces the previous “common wheelchair bulletin” that was issued by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), which became outdated following the removal of the “common wheelchair” concept by amendments made to the DOT Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) regulations in October 2011.

A copy of the revised DOT guidance has been posted to the FTA web site is located at http://www.fta.dot.gov/12325_15055.html.

This document has been approved through DOT’s Disability Law Coordinating Council as representing the official views of the Department on this matter.
