Update of the Guidelines for Transportation Vehicles

The Board is undertaking rulemaking to update its ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) for Transportation Vehicles, which were originally published in 1991.  The Board has proposed updates to sections of the guidelines covering buses and vans.  Updates to other sections of the guidelines covering rail cars will be developed separately based on recommendations from an advisory committee organized by the Board.
