Accessible transit

Our mission is to deliver quality, affordable transit services that link people, jobs and communities—and providing transit that's accessible to everyone is an important part of our commitment to do so.


We employ a range of features and services to provide transit that's accessible to people with disabilities. In short:

  • 100% our vehicles (both buses and railcars) are accessible.
  • 102 of our 145 rail stations are accessible.

Though more than two thirds of our system is now accessible and key station upgrade requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act have long been met, multiple projects are under way make more of our stations fully accessible. We're also developing a roadmap to bringing our system to 100% accessibility! Read about our All Stations Accessibility Program (ASAP).
