ADA-Compliant stations are those rail stations that are fully compliant with the ADA. Under the ADA Acts, many older stations have elevators. These older stations were given time, some to year 2020, to remodel or be replaced and given time to add ramps, the tile strips along the platform, and the communication equipment for full ADA compliant.
