Accessible Station Parking

The accessible parking spaces at the stations* are clearly designated with ADA-required signage and ground markings, ensuring safe and appropriate parking areas for individuals with disabilities. These spaces are conveniently located near station platforms for easy access.

Designated Bus Drop-off Areas

Both LYNX and Votran buses, which provide connecting bus service to SunRail, are also equipped with onboard wheelchair lifts that are deployed by the bus operator. Most stations have a designated bus boarding area which is located along an angled curb to provide easily identifiable designated boarding areas and allow independent departure/arrival of the buses.**

Service Animals

In accordance with ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, and tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices.
