External ADA

MDT must ensure that all of its programs, services and activities are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The External Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) program ensures that people with disabilities have equitable opportunities to use the public rights-of-way system. This program is responsible for implementing MDT's Transition Plan, which guides MDT's efforts to provide an accessible transportation system within the state of Montana.
