障碍物 
固定航线服务, a passenger's request for a driver to position the vehicle to avoid obstructions to the passenger's ability to enter or leave the vehicle at a designated stop location, 比如停着的车, 雪堆, 和建筑, should be granted so long as positioning the vehicle to avoid the obstruction does not pose a direct threat. 被授予, such a request should result in the vehicle stopping in reasonably close proximity to the designated stop location. Transportation entities are not required to pick up passengers with disabilities at non-designated locations. 固定路线运营商将不必建立标志停止或路线偏离政策, as these would be fundamental alterations to a fixed route system rather than reasonable modifications of a system. 同样的, 受制于本附录引言中讨论的限制, paratransit operators should be flexible in establishing pick up and drop off points to avoid obstructions.

费用处理
旅客对过境人员的要求(如.g., 司机, station attendant) to handle the fare media when the passenger with a disability 不能 pay the fare by the generally established means should be granted on fixed route or paratransit service (e.g.(如巴士乘客无法伸手或无法将车票放入投币箱).
