D436-16 - Accessible over-the-road buses
Safe transportation is a critical element of full community participation for persons with physical disabilities, and over-the-road buses (OTRB) are a popular method of transportation as they are commonly used for city-to-city travel, scheduled local and regional tours, and charter trips.
First published in 2003, this second edition of CSA D436 provides updated requirements that help enable OTRB operators to integrate persons with disabilities into their routine services. This standard is designed to complement CSA D435 Accessible Transit Buses, which is applicable to transit (cross-city) buses. It also is intended to be used in conjunction with standards issued by Transport Canada under the federal Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations (MVSR).
