A Look at Our Commitment to ADA Compliance

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was a landmark piece of legislation that prohibited discrimination against individuals with disabilities. It also enacted accessibility requirements that make everyday life a little easier for people with disabilities. Here at Haymarket Transportation, we remain in full compliance with the requirements of the ADA. We also go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that each of our guests, regardless of ability, has a hassle-free and pleasant time on our guided tours.

Priority Seating

All of our coaches have a designated priority seating area at the front of the vehicles. When an individual with a disability joins us for a sightseeing tour, we may ask other, non-disabled passengers to relocate to non-priority seating. Each coach has a wheelchair securement area available.

Lift-Equipped Buses

When you book transportation through our company, you can rest assured that the vehicle is accessible. If you require a lift-equipped charter bus, please notify Haymarket Transportation at least 48 hours prior to your departure time. Our lift-equipped buses each have two wheelchair securement areas.

Driver Assistance

Our professional drivers are well-trained to efficiently and sensitively respond to the needs of travelers with disabilities. Please let your driver know if you require assistance with anything during your trip. Note that the drivers are not permitted to provide medical care, or assistance with eating or toileting. The driver can help you safely store your mobility aids. If a mobility aid cannot fit in the overhead compartment, it will be stored in the luggage compartment at no charge to you. The driver will be happy to retrieve your mobility aid when you’re ready to disembark.

Haymarket Transportation encourages guests with disabilities to contact us directly to discuss their needs. Call (301) 778-2007, and we’ll do everything possible to ensure your experience is a positive one. Our professional and courteous drivers look forward to sharing the best of what the region has to offer via our sightseeing tours in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland.
