The Access Board held a public hearing to receive testimony on its proposed rule to update its ADA guidelines for buses and vans. This proposed rule, which was published on July 26, 2010, contains revisions and updates to the guidelines, which apply to new or remanufactured vehicles. The proposed guidelines include revisions to specifications covering vehicle ramp slopes, onboard circulation routes, wheelchair spaces, and securement systems. The Board is also proposing a new requirement for automated stop and route announcements in systems with 100 or more buses. The DPC will be submitting written comments on the proposed rule.
