The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title III prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the activities of places of public accommodations and requires newly constructed or altered places of public accommodation—as well as commercial facilities to comply with the ADA Standards.

A place of public accommodation is a facility whose operations:

Affect commerce; and;

 

Fall within at least one of the following 12 categories:

 * Places of lodging (e.g., inns, hotels, and motels) (except for owner-occupied establishments renting fewer than six rooms);

 * Establishments serving food or drink (e.g., restaurants and bars);

 * Places of exhibition or entertainment (e.g., motion picture houses, theaters, concert halls, and stadiums);

 * Places of public gathering (e.g., auditoriums, convention centers, and lecture halls);

 * Sales or rental establishments (e.g., bakeries, grocery stores, hardware stores, and shopping centers);

 * Service establishments (e.g., laundromats, dry-cleaners, banks, barber shops, beauty shops, travel services, shoe repair services, funeral parlors, gas stations, offices of accountants or lawyers, pharmacies, insurance offices, and professional offices of health care providers, and hospitals);

 * Public transportation terminals, depots, or stations (not including facilities relating to air transportation);

 * Places of public display or collection (e.g., museums, libraries, and galleries);

 * Places of recreation (e.g., parks, zoos, and amusement parks)

 * Places of education (e.g., nursery schools, elementary, secondary, undergraduate, or postgraduate private schools);

 * Social service center establishments (e.g., day-care centers, senior citizen centers, homeless shelters, food banks, and adoption agencies); and

 * Places of exercise or recreation (e.g., gymnasiums, health spas, bowling alleys, and golf courses).

Your offering may be able to be more disability-friendly than you think.

Many locations and/or activities may not meet the legal definition of “ADA accessible,” but there could be aspects that can make activities more attractive to people with mobility concerns.

For example, a bus tour may not meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition, but if the individual brings a collapsible wheelchair and is able to go up the stairs and the rest of the tour can be navigated with that wheelchair, it may be accessible enough for their needs.

On the other hand, a building might be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), but the activity inside could provide some, but not all mobility limitations (i.e. trampoline park with a restricted section for small children or golf courses with a swivel seat cart during play). Individuals and families with this information could confidently visit because they know what to expect.
