Accessibility Advisory Committee
The Accessibility Advisory Committee was established by the authority of the Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) Board of Directors. It serves in an advisory role resource to the DTA. Its purpose is to provide the DTA with recommendations on the DTA’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), facilitate the dialogue between the DTA and the disability community, advocates on behalf of the disability community and increase the use of the DTA’s services by people with disabilities.
We are looking for members to round out the newly reimagined committee. Learn more below, and discover how you can get involved Today!
