The ATBCB Office of Technical and Information Services began to receive a series of calls from confused transit agencies, state and local governments, contractors, and consumers because some facilities which would have been required to be accessible under the old DOT 504 regulation were now planned to be inaccessible.
Thus, in addition to compliance and enforcement, Congress charged the ATBCB with providing technical assistance to all affected parties, much of which involves explaining the various requirements to designers and builders.
Nevertheless, the minimum guidelines promulgated by the ATBCB, and the actual design standards, UFAS, do acknowledge the problems inherent in renovations to transit facilities, such as subway stations.
