We are proud to support the disability community by serving as a Gold Sponsor at Saturday’s 13th Annual Disability Pride Parade. Held in downtown Chicago, the march kicked off with friends and staff from the RTA and Service Boards, who were also on hand at Daley Plaza to provide information about the region’s accessible public transportation programs.
We join nearly 50 million Americans with disabilities in celebrating the upcoming 26th 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.
The RTA administers multiple programs that serve people with disabilities. For more information about the various programs the RTA provides, please visit RTAChicago.org.
