Number of stations
|Commuter rail||Heavy rail||Light rail||Other rail||Total number of ADA-compliant stations||Total number of stations||ADA-compliant stations (percent)|
KEY: ADA = Americans with Disabilities Act.
NOTES: Other rail includes monorail and (for 2001-2008 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 with elevators were given time, some to year 2020, for replacement or remodeling. In addition, they were given time to add ramps, tile strips along the platform, and communication equipment for full ADA compliance.
