THE RENEWAL OF PARATRANSIT SERVICE UNDER THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT OF 1990. A FEDERAL PERSPECTIVE

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Civil Rights law designed to eliminate discrimination against persons with disabilities in three primary areas: employment, public accommodations, and transportation, and bring them into the mainstream of American life. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has jurisdiction over the employment provision of the law, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has jurisdiction over the public accommodation provisions and the Department of Transportation (DOT) the transportation provisions. This paper is an update of the significant activities in the implementation of the fixed route and paratransit provision of ADA from the federal perspective.
