ADA Complaint Process for Transportation: Tips for Riders and CILs

Ken Thompson

For transportation, the ADA complaint process requires that customer complaints and concerns be resolved quickly and fairly. ADA regulations at 49 CFR Part 37.17 and 27.13 require agencies to have specific procedures in place to address complaints
alleging ADA violations. The regulations also require a designated responsible employee to manage the overall process.

Key Points
• Complaint procedures that provide for prompt and equitable resolution
• Maintain a copy of all complaints of ADA noncompliance for 1 year
• Maintain a record (summary) of all complaints for 5 years
