Goal 5: Advance accessible intercity transportation systems

Accessible Trains & Stations

Last Edited by DREDF

USDOT should continue to enforce Amtrak and other rail operators' ADA obligations. 30 years after the passage of the ADA, trains and stations must be accessible, and providers should consider the necessity of stations agents to assist when needed. Trains should provide level boarding, clear audible announcements for the blind and visually impaired, and visual announcements for the deaf and hard of hearing. State and local entities that own stations must also be reminded of their ADA obligations.
