Accessibility of trains
About accessibility standards
The Agency sets out expectations for the accessibility of federal transportation.
Our Codes of Practice set out standards for a minimum level of accessibility for persons with disabilities. They're developed in consultation with transportation service providers and the community of persons with disabilities (including our Accessibility Advisory Committee).
We monitor compliance to ensure codes are effective in removing undue obstacles.
