Description:

The following study examines the effects of the Americans with Disabilities Act on the nation's public transportation systems. Considered are the legislation's benefits to Americans with physical and mental disabilities, as well as the effects on those who were not the intended targets of the remedies provided by the law. A review of the literature looks at the possible arguments as they have been seen by experts in the field - politicians, transit planners, advocates for the disabled, etc. Previous studies on the subject are evaluated for what light they may shed on the issue. The researcher also studies the effects of the act more directly by gauging the responses of those who actually make use of such public transit facilities. The researcher presents recommendations for future action, as well as comments on the overall utility of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it applies to the country's public transportation system. Lastly, there are suggestions for future research.
