DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AF07 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Equitable Access to Transit Facilities 

This rulemaking would explore the following revisions to minimum guidelines for accessibility for buildings and facilities: (1) Secondary elevators to improve the reliability of access to stations and facilities for persons unable to negotiate stairs or escalators; (2) improvements in wayfinding that would benefit all riders, but particularly those who are blind, have low vision, have cognitive disabilities, or are neurodiverse, and are prevented from otherwise navigating the system independently; and (3) induction loops that would bring clarity to announcements and emergency instructions to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
