A $10B federal proposal to improve transit station accessibility

  • Date: 05/27/2021

A new federal, bicameral bill would offer $10 billion to ensure transit and passenger rail stations are accessible to people with disabilities.

The All Stations Accessibility Program (ASAP) Act of 2021 from Sens. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, and Bob Casey, D-Pa., would create a 10-year federal grant program to help transit agencies upgrade stations to either meet or exceed accessibility standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.
