AccessChicago Brings Top Providers and Services Under One Roof This Thursday
July 14, 2014
Chicago – The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) joins the more than 37 million Americans with disabilities in celebrating the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The law, signed by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990, guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities in public accommodations, commercial facilities, employment, transportation, state and local government service and communications.
AccessChicago -- July 17, 2014
The RTA, along with the CTA, Metra and Pace, is participating in AccessChicago 2014 this Thursday, July 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Navy Pier. This is the City’s premier event that brings more than 100 of Chicagoland’s top disability-related service providers, product merchandisers, assistive technology suppliers and recreational exhibitors together under one roof.

This year, both the CTA and Pace will have buses at the event, so riders can practice boarding buses and using wheelchair securements to become more aware of the accessibility features of the region’s fixed-route system.
