Hello Federation friends, 


Below you will find a link to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act that
impacts fixed and Para transit services. This ruling took effect on March
13, 2015. 

Here is the link:

You will find the information contained in an 11-page PDF. There are many
references to fixed route service and minor modifications that would allow
wheelchair users to board the bus when obstacles at the designated bus stop
would otherwise preclude these individuals from benefiting from the service.


Additionally; the article placed an emphasis on Para transit curb to curb
service and the provision of door to door service. 


Happy reading!
