Municipalities that offer conventional transportation services must consult on, and plan for, accessible bus stops and shelters in their community.
To determine what is needed to make bus stops and shelters more accessible, municipalities must consult with:
Their accessibility advisory committee, if one has been established
The public, and
People with disabilities
Any planning or steps to meet the goal of accessible bus stops and shelters must be included in the municipality's accessibility plan.
The compliance date for these requirements is January 1, 2013. For more information on the specific requirements and dates for compliance, refer to the timelines tool for details.
