USDOT Web Design System (PDF)

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Web Design System captures the web standards for DOT Drupal Content Management System (CMS) websites and outlines the design guidelines for the DOT’s ecosystem of websites. The web standards support modern web development and usability practices and apply stringent requirements for conformance to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended in 1998, which ensures access for people with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities, as well as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA standards. This guide serves as documentation for the identity, colors, typography, iconography, graphics, layouts, and components shared across the USDOT platform websites.
