Accessibility regulations

The 2010 amended Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations include new or expanded provisions for nondiscrimination policies. They cover:
  • the use of wheelchair and other power-driven mobility devices
  • the use of service animals
  • reserving and guaranteeing accessible hotel rooms
  • selling tickets for wheelchair accessible seating at sporting events and performance venues
  • guidelines on how the new regulations affect existing facilities
