The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that was passed in 1990. This law prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, public services, transportation, public accommodations and telecommunications. The purpose of the law is to provide equal public transportation for anyone, who because of their disability or condition, are unable to independently access or use regular transit service.
