On March 13th, the Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a final rule, which revises the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (section 504). The rule requires transportation entities to make reasonable modifications/accommodations to policies, practices, and procedures to avoid discrimination and ensure that their programs are accessible to individuals with disabilities.
As published on the Federal Register:
INARF is happy to hear of this final rule. The modification/accommodation requirements will allow Hoosiers with Disabilities to better access the community and/or supports consistently through the entire calendar year. While the rule does not specific what, exactly, the process must entail the DOT does reserve the right to review any of the processes as part of its normal oversight.
