Goal 4: Support the development and diversification of the public transit systems

Safer, More Accessible Transit Vehicles

Last Edited by DREDF

New buses and transit vehicles should include lifts that hold greater weights, clearer audible announcements for blind and visually impaired passengers and visual announcements for the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition, new airflow and filtration systems that provide safety assurance for driver and passengers. USDOT should also make it clear that adequate heat in cold weather, and adequate cooling in hot weather are disability access issues.
