Goal 5: Advance accessible intercity transportation systems

Please share your ideas regarding linking our Nation's cities and regions with accessible transportation systems will provide the widest range of options to ensure every member of our community can participate in economic, recreational, and social opportunities.

DOT's goals related to intercity transportation include:

• Aviation: Advance the safety and accessibility of the Nation's air transportation system through oversight, technical assistance, enforcement, and policy-making.

• Over-the-Road Buses: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will continue to ensure ADA compliance in the motorcoach industry.

• Intercity Passenger Rail: Promote the accessibility of the Nation's intercity passenger transportation systems. This includes Amtrak, commuter rail, and privately-operated passenger rail carriers.
