The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) seeks public comments on a new proposed rule to improve restroom access for passengers with disabilities on single-aisle aircraft with 125 or more seats. The rule is based on negotiated rulemaking undertaken by DOT's Advisory Committee on Accessible Air Transportation, which included aviation industry representatives, disability rights advocates, and other stakeholders. The proposed regulation addresses lavatory interiors, on-board wheelchairs, and training of flight attendants. Comments are due by March 2, 2020, and can be submitted here.
