U.S. Access Board Advisory Committee on Rail Vehicles to Meet September 11 & 12, call in option (listening)

The Board's Rail Vehicles Access Advisory Committee (RVAAC), which is assisting the Board in its update of the ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Transportation Vehicles, will hold its next meeting September 11 and 12 in Washington, D.C. The committee is reviewing sections of the guidelines that cover fixed guideway systems, including rapid, light, commuter, intercity, and high speed rail and will make recommendations to the Board on how they should be updated. The agenda includes sessions of each subcomittee and reports on work completed by the subcommittees since the last full committee meeting in April.

Committee meetings are open to the public, and interested persons can attend and communicate their views on issues of interest during designated public comment periods. Members of the public can follow the proceedings remotely through a dial-in option or real-time captioning.

For further information, visit the Board's website or contact Paul Beatty at rvaac@access-board.gov, (202) 272-0012 (v), or (202) 272-0072 (TTY).
