KEY: ADA = Americans with Disabilities Act.
NOTES: Other rail includes monorail and (for 2001-2006 only) Alaska Railroad. Table does not include station data for automated guideway, jitney, and inclined plane transit services. Data may not add to total because of independent rounding.
ADA-compliant stations are those that are fully compliant with the ADA. Under the ADA, many older stations have elevators and were given time, some to year 2020, to re-model or be replaced. In addition, they were given time to add ramps, tile strips along the platform, and communication equipment for full ADA compliance.
