Public Transit Disability Dashboard

For people with disabilities, using public transportation often requires prior planning. This includes understanding accessibility features of transit facilities and vehicles, and ways to request rider accommodations and paratransit. Public transit websites are frequently used to get the information needed to plan a transit trip, making transit website information and accessibility key components for ensuring people with disabilities have equitable access to public transit.  

The Public Transit Disability Dashboard evaluates and compares information and accessibility of public transit system websites. These data assess the information available to potential users, such as information about facility and vehicle accessibility features, policy and planning procedures, rider accommodation processes, and paratransit services. While these data do not represent individual experiences of transit users, such as real-time elevator outages, this dashboard provides insight on barriers to transit trip planning for people with disabilities.
