D435 Accessible Transit Buses

For More Information:


Overview

Safe transportation is a critical element of full community participation for persons with physical disabilities, and public bus systems are often a critical mode of transportation for these passengers. It is important that transit buses used by transit operations in their routine service be fully accessible.

First published in 2002, this second edition of CSA D435 provides updated requirements that help enable transit operators to integrate persons with disabilities into their normal services. It is designed to complement CSA D436 Accessible Over-the-Road Buses and is also intended to be used in conjunction with standards issued by Transport Canada under the federal Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations (MVSR).

Highlights of D435

  • Updated to harmonize with latest Transport Canada regulations and standards for transit buses
  • Details revised requirements for the design and positioning of mobility aid securement and occupant restraint (MASOR) systems and anchors
  • Clearly describes new testing procedures for MASOR systems
  • Includes updates to the requirements for physical barriers and padding materials
