Report Finds Many Amtrak Stations Not Fully Accessible to Disabled

The Washington Post reports in its “Dr Gridlock” blog that a report by the National Disability Rights Network has found that many of the nation’s Amtrak stations “remain difficult to navigate for people with disabilities,” and “some have ‘major barriers’ that deter them from using the rail system.” The group inspected 94 stations in 25 states and the District of Columbia, “and found accessibility problems in 89 of the stations, including Union Station, which is the second busiest train stop in the system.” Curtis Decker, executive director of the network, “said his organization has shared the group’s finding with Amtrak and the Justice Department.”
