U.S. Department of Transportation’s Disability Policy Priorities

The Disability Policy Priorities were announced and adopted by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) in July 2022 during a celebration of the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. These priorities highlight work that DOT is undertaking to increase access for people with disabilities across four focus areas – enabling safe and accessible air travel; enabling multimodal accessibility of public transportation facilities, vehicles, and rights-of-way; enabling access to good-paying jobs and business opportunities for people with disabilities and enabling accessibility of electric vehicles and automated vehicles. This policy priorities are a milestone for the Department of Transportation that represents a shift in how we view and deliver transportation programs for all.
