Subject: Reminder: Upcoming Webinar Series on Transportation begins Oct.

The ADA National Network is pleased to announce a new 7 session webinar
series covering the recently released "Topic Guides on ADA Transportation".
The program is coordinated by the DBTAC-Great Lakes ADA Center and the
DBTAC-Southwest ADA Center in collaboration with Project Action and the
Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF).

Funded by the Federal Transit Administration to provide technical assistance
on transportation to transit agencies, riders, and advocates, the Topic
Guides bring together the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) and the Department of Transportation ADA regulations, FTA
determinations, and best operational practices for ADA compliance. The Topic
Guides also draw information from many other sources.

The Topic Guides on ADA Transportation were developed by the Disability
Rights Education & Defense Fund (DREDF)(www.dredf.org) and TranSystems
Corporation (http://www.transystems.com/). The guides are available online
at http://www.dredf.org/ADAtg/index.shtml.
