Amtrak Stations Cited For Accessibility Problems - Disability Scoop

Amtrak Stations Cited For Accessibility Problems - Disability Scoop | Towns and cities for All | Scoop.it

Jane Sleeth's curator insight, October 19, 2013 10:32 PM

The US's ADA requires customers and in this case passengers to adopt a litigious approach to accessibility. This is a slow and ineffective way to ensure businesses including Amtrak become accessible to ALL passengers.  The AODA in Ontario takes a broader approach to accessibility. The only thing missing is a Provincial leader who backs the AODA ACT fully in both words and actions. #JESleeth Optimal Peformance
