Bus Stop Accessibility Guidelines and Management

-One Day Course-

This course presents a step by step approach to effective management and upgrades of accessible bus stops. Using guidance in Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, ADA Accessibility Guidelines, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Circular, Americans with Disabilities Act Guidance, along with Easter Seals Project Action and TCRP reports, guidance is provided on evaluating a transit entity’s current bus stop accessibility. This includes evaluations of accessible pathways to the bus stop, bus stop amenities and signage and bus stop area space for passengers with disabilities. The course includes “how to” recommendations for creating a bus stop inventory, bus stop improvement plan and a priority system for bus stop upgrades. Pictures and examples of bus stop accessibility are used from transit entities around the country.
