TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 163: Strategy Guide to Enable and Promote the Use of Fixed-Route Transit by People with Disabilities is designed to help transit agencies fulfill the primary goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) by making mainstream fixed-route bus and rail systems accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The focus of the Strategy Guide is to offer guidance on providing public services in the most integrated setting possible.

The project that developed the Strategy Guide also produced the following publications, which are available only in PDF format:

• a final research report that includes a summary of the literature, description of the research methodology, copies of the survey instruments used, and detailed tabulations of the survey responses; and

• information briefs that summarize key findings and findings of the research in the following five areas:

the overall strategy that is suggested,

current use of fixed-route transit by persons with disabilities,

bus stop and pedestrian infrastructure improvement efforts,

fare incentive programs, and

ADA paratransit eligibility determination programs.
