FTA Webinar ADA Circular Training February 3rd:The ADA and Paratransit

from a Press Release | January 25, 2016

In October 2015, FTA issued its ADA Circular. To help transit agencies and riders get the most out of the Circular, FTA’s Office of Civil Rights is hosting a series of webinars that provide an in-depth look at ADA requirements and how the Circular addresses them. Each hour-long webinar will provide useful information on ADA topics as well as tips and suggestions for providing accessible service. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.

Join us for Webinar 2 – The ADA and Paratransit – 2-3 p.m. EST Wednesday, February 3. 
We will address service requirements related to paratransit service criteria, capacity constraints, and trip reservations. For eligibility, we will look at types of eligibility, the eligibility process, and no-show policies. This webinar covers material from Chapters 8 and 9 of the FTA ADA Circular.

The ADA webinar series is designed for FTA grantees. Because attendance space is limited, we request that each agency register for a single spot. Note: this registration link is only for Webinar 2. Registration links for future webinars will be sent out separately.

FTA is committed to providing equal access to this session for all participants. If you need alternative formats, options, or services, please contact FTAcivilrightstrain@dot.gov.
