Adopted Rules Content: 

These proposed rule amendments allow certain AAR vehicles to use bus lanes in order to provide a faster service to people with disabilities; clarify express lane requirements for Access-A-Ride vehicles; and repeal Chapter 5, which contains provisions regulating the paratransit program Access-A-Ride that is no longer operated by DOT.  The amendments are asfollows:

 

 ·   Section 4-01(b) is amended by adding a new definition for “Access-A-Ride vehicle”. 

 ·  Section 4-07(k) is amended by clarifying express lane requirements for Access-A-Ride vehicles.

 ·  Section 4-12(m) is amended by allowing certain Access-A-Ride vehicles to use bus lanes. 

 ·  Chapter 5 of Title 34 of the City’s rules is repealed in its entirety.

 

The repeal of Chapter 5 was identified during the retrospective rules review.  Working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget, the Mayor’s Office of Operations conducted a retrospective rules review of the City’s existing rules, identifying those rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance.

 

 

Based on DOT’s final review of the aforementioned amendments, a clause was added to section 4-12(m)(1) to clarify that when signs are posted, those signs control.
