Prerule Stage
328. Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for
Transportation Vehicles; Rail Vehicles
    E.O. 13771 Designation: Other.
    Legal Authority: 42 U.S.C. 12204
    Abstract: This rulemaking would update the Access Board's existing
accessibility guidelines for transportation vehicles that operate on
fixed guideway systems (e.g., rapid rail, light rail, commuter rail,
and intercity rail) and are covered by the Americans with Disabilities
Act. The existing ``rail vehicles'' guidelines, which are located at 36
CFR part 1192, subparts C to F and H, were initially promulgated in
1991, and are in need of an update to, among other things, keep pace
with newer accessibility-related technologies, harmonize with recently-
developed national and international consensus standards, and
incorporate recommendations from the Board's Rail Vehicles Access
Advisory Committee's 2015 Report. Revisions or updates to the rail
vehicles guidelines would be intended to ensure that ADA-covered rail
vehicles are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with
disabilities. Compliance with any revised rail vehicles guidelines
would not be required until these guidelines are adopted by the U.S.
Department of Transportation in a separate rulemaking.
