What are your transportation rights? How can you request accessible pedestrian signals in your neighborhood?

Join the ACB Transportation and Environmental Access Committees for a joint presentation at the 55th annual Conference and Convention of the American Council of the Blind and learn answers to these questions and more.

Do you want to request accessible pedestrian signals on streets you travel but you are not sure how to go about it?  Learn from ACB's expert advocates about the important issues, strategies and tactics you may use to get accessible pedestrian signals installed in your community.

Guidance from the Federal Transit Administration: The new ADA Circular

Last October, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) issued a comprehensive set of guidelines designed to clearly explain the FTA's expectations for public transit agencies and other transportation providers who are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new ADA Circular covers everything from rail stations and bus stops to commuter express buses and paratransit. Download a copy of the transportation circular by visiting:
