Follow-up Audit on Progress in Achieving Compliance with the American with Disabilities Act
We are initiating a follow-up audit of Amtrak’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). ADA became law in 1990 and required that intercity rail stations be made accessible to persons with disabilities by July 26, 2010. In September 2011, we reported that Amtrak had not met this requirement since only 48 of the 482 (10 percent) stations it serves were ADA-compliant. Amtrak established a goal of having the remaining stations ADA-compliant by September 30, 2015.
