U.S. Access Board's Rail Access Advisory Committee to Meet June 4 & 5: Call-in option (listening only)

The Access 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 June 4 and 5 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.

At the meeting, committee members will further deliberate on the committee's final report to the Board. They also will consider matters relating to the process for finalizing the report and submitting it to the Board.

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.
