508 / Accessibility
In 1998, President Clinton signed the Workforce Investment Act into law. This
Act amended Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to include
accessibility requirements for electronic and information technology. Section
508 now requires that electronic and information technology used by Federal,
State and Local Governments, including their Web sites, be made as accessible
for people with disabilities as it is for people without disabilities. The U.S. Access Board has
outlined specific accessibility standards for implementing Section 508,
especially as it applies to Web pages.
The Luzerne County Transportation Authority (LCTA) has always had a commitment
to accessibility. We have taken time to ensure that LCTABus.com complies with
provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other accessibility
concerns, whenever feasible.
Currently, LCTA is working to ensure that existing pages on LCTABus.com are
Section 508-compliant, and that future pages will be created specifically with
these accessibility standards in mind.
Feel free to contact us for any reason, especially if you encounter barriers to
accessibility on any of our Web pages. With your help, we can work together to
ensure that LCTABus.com remains as accessible as possible. Please direct
questions, comments, or recommendations regarding the accessibility of
LCTABus.com by contacting us here.
