Maryland Department of Transportation - ADA Site: Accessible Gas Stations
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law created to provide individuals with disabilities the right to equal opportunity. This act calls for businesses to make their facilities, goods, and services accessible to all people with disabilities. The law prohibits discrimination based upon a disability in employment, government, transportation, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and telecommunications. The Maryland Department of Transportation believes the ADA is good business because access for everyone is the key to attracting new customers and retaining those you now serve
