Compliance Assessments - ADA Complementary Paratransit

The objective of this project is to support compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, requiring public transportation services and facilities be accessible to persons with disabilities, including bus and bus facilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that public transportation services and facilities be accessible to persons with disabilities, including bus and bus facilities. The objective of this project activity is to assist the FTA staff in implementing its oversight responsibility. Compliance review is an ongoing civil rights effort that, in this case, includes onsite ADA compliance assessments of five ADA complementary paratransit services of selected grantees. The contractor will conduct the compliance reviews, prepare a final report and follow-up action with the transit agency to ensure that recommended actions are taken to correct deficiencies identified in the compliance review within an established timeframe. These assessments not only ensure compliance with the DOT ADA regulations, they also provide valuable technical assistance to transit agencies. FTA provides information and technical assistance to transit providers regarding the requirements of ADA and U.S. Department of Transportation ADA regulations.
