Accessibility and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 to ensure that people with disabilities are treated fairly. The law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodations, and communications. That’s why at NYMTC, we’re committed to mitigating any barriers that may limit accessibility in all our activities and services.  

NYMTC provides programs, services, and activities that are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities including:

  • Upon request, NYMTC provides accommodations for persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in programs, services, and activities. Services include sign language interpreters, large print documents, audio recordings, and other ways of making information accessible to people with speech, hearing, or vision disabilities.  
  • NYMTC ensures that its public meetings are held in facilities that can accommodate persons with disabilities. 

To request these services for one of our programs or public events, please call 212-383-7200 at least 72 hours in advance.
