What is ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to the Civil Rights of 1964, which provided individuals protection from discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. The ADA is a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.  The ADA guarantees equal opportunity and access for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, and transportation.

Accessible Buses

All TARC buses meet ADA requirements, offering wheelchair ramps and other features to accommodate riders with disabilities.  By ADA standards and TARC policy, wheelchairs must be secured on buses. Seats near the front door are generally reserved for elderly and mobility-impaired passengers.

While all of TARC’s buses are accessible please note that not all stops are accessible.
