SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT
BETWEEN
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
AND
THE NATIONAL RAILROAD PASSENGER CORPORATION (“AMTRAK”)

Press Release

  1. INTRODUCTION
    1. The United States of America (“United States”) intends to bring an action against the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (“Amtrak”) to enforce Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (“ADA”), 42 U.S.C. § 12131-12165, and its implementing regulation, 49 C.F.R. Part 37, United States v. Amtrak (the “Civil Action”).  The United States alleges Amtrak violated Title II of the ADA by failing to make the existing stations1 for which it is responsible in its intercity rail transportation system readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs, per the U.S. Department of Transportation Standards for Accessible Transportation Facilities (“DOT Standards”), 49 C.F.R. §§ 37.9 and 37.43, and 49 C.F.R. Part 37, Appendix A.  The United States further alleges this has harmed passengers with disabilities using or seeking to use Amtrak’s services.  Amtrak denies these allegations and asserts that it is, and has been, committed to complying with the ADA and to accommodating individuals with disabilities, but it enters into this Settlement Agreement (“Agreement”) voluntarily in order to continue in good faith to devote significant resources to improve transportation services to passengers with disabilities as it has for several years, rather than in litigation.
    2. The United States and Amtrak (collectively, the “Parties”) agree that it is in the Parties’ best interests, and the public’s interest, to resolve this matter on mutually agreeable terms.  The Parties acknowledge and agree that the fact that Amtrak has entered into this Agreement should not be considered an admission or evidence of guilt or liability.  The Parties therefore agree and stipulate to enter into this Agreement to resolve the United States’ complaint against Amtrak.

  2. AMTRAK
    1. Amtrak operates at approximately 500 stations across 46 states and the District of Columbia, and is a corporation organized under the laws of the District of Columbia.  49 U.S.C. § 24301(a)(2).  The parties agree that Amtrak is deemed a “public entity” for purposes of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. § 12131(1)(C) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.3, that is subject to Title II of the ADA and its implementing regulations, 28 C.F.R. Part 35 and 49 C.F.R. Parts 37 and 38.

  3. TERMS
    1. Amtrak will comply with Title II of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12131-12165, and its implementing regulation, 49 C.F.R. Parts 37, and will modify its policies, practices, and procedures, to the extent set forth herein, when such modifications are necessary to bring its intercity rail transportation service into compliance with Title II of the ADA.
    2. Amtrak will take steps, where expressly required by this Agreement, to inform its agents, vendors, contractors, and service providers that each must comply with Title II of the ADA and its accessible transportation requirements.
    3. Amtrak will not retaliate against or coerce in any way any person who has tried or tries to exercise his or her rights under this Agreement or Title II of the ADA.
    4. When Amtrak constructs any new station, Amtrak shall construct it to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs, unless Amtrak can demonstrate that it is structurally impracticable, as required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(1) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.41.
    5. Consistent with the terms set forth in this Agreement, Amtrak shall make existing stations for which it is responsible readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs, as required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(A)(i) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.49.
    6. When Amtrak alters an existing station or part of an existing station in a way that affects or could affect the usability of the facility or part of the facility, Amtrak shall make the alterations “in such a manner that, to the maximum extent feasible, the altered portions of the facility are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs, upon the completion of such alterations,” as required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(B)(i) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.43.  When Amtrak undertakes an alteration that affects or could affect the usability of or access to an area of a facility containing a primary function, Amtrak “shall make the alterations in such a manner that, to the maximum extent feasible, the path of travel to the altered area and the bathrooms, telephones, and drinking fountains serving the altered area, are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs,” if the cost and scope of doing so would not be disproportionate, as required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(B)(ii) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.43(a).

    ADA Stations Program (“ADASP”)

    1. Amtrak alleges it has expended hundreds of millions of dollars improving access to its trains in a variety of ways.  Beginning in 2009, Amtrak implemented the ADA Stations Program (“ADASP”), through which Amtrak plans for the design and construction of ADA-compliant station facilities, including buildings, passenger platforms, and parking. Under the current ADASP, Amtrak prioritizes projects as follows:
      1. The 24 stations originally identified as having significant known or potential accessibility deficiencies, attached as Exhibit 1;
      2. Passenger Information Display Systems (“PIDS”).  PIDS provide both audio and visual messages for passengers, including passengers with disabilities.  A list of stations for which Amtrak has ADA responsibility or is voluntarily installing PIDS is attached as Exhibit 2 (many of which have already been installed);
      3. Additional stations with known or potential building access or key amenity deficiencies (such as entrances, restrooms, or ticket counters); and
      4. Ensuring access to all accessible cars in each Amtrak train servicing a station in an integrated setting, by providing level-entry passenger platforms where legally required, or, with the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) approval of a proposed plan, by an alternate means of achieving access to all accessible cars in each Amtrak train servicing the station to the maximum extent feasible, as required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(B)(i) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.43.
    2. Consistent with Amtrak’s mission, and the terms in this Agreement, Amtrak will continue to expand on its existing ADASP (including with the deliverables identified in Paragraphs 12-16), which will also include a rolling ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan (see Paragraphs 17-18) and an ADASP Sunset Analysis (see Paragraph 19).
    3. Property Surveys.  As of the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak agrees that it has completed Property Surveys and/or will conduct any needed title and public record data searches for all of the station facilities in Exhibit 3 for which Amtrak has ADA responsibility. 2  These Property Surveys document property lines and ownership of each such station and its surrounding area and help determine Amtrak’s legal responsibilities under the ADA.  Nothing in this Paragraph is intended to restrict or limit Amtrak from performing additional Property Surveys determined to be necessary in the future or to require Amtrak to conduct any Property Surveys where it no longer has ADA responsibility.
    4. ADA Assessments.  By December 31, 2022, Amtrak agrees to complete ADA Assessments for the station facilities in Exhibit 3 where Amtrak has sole or shared responsibility for ADA compliance, documenting the ADA noncompliance at each of these station facilities unless, following a Property Survey or the receipt of other reliable or material information, the Parties agree that Amtrak does not have ADA responsibility for all or part of a station.  For station facilities for which Amtrak acquires sole or shared responsibility for ADA compliance after the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak shall have 12 months from the date it acquires ADA responsibility for that station facility to complete any needed ADA Assessment.  Nothing in this Paragraph limits Amtrak from performing additional ADA Assessments it determines to be necessary, even if Amtrak does not have responsibility under the ADA for all or part of a station facility.
    5. PIDS Deployment.  Amtrak will continue its program of deploying PIDS at the stations set forth in Exhibit 2 in accordance with the ADA and the DOT Standards, § 810.7, to the extent that it does not already have PIDS.  For purposes of this Agreement, PIDS deployment at a station will be considered to have been completed as soon as the system is in use.   
    6. Timeline for Station Facility Remediation.  Amtrak will continue to eliminate station accessibility deficiencies with respect to station facilities for which Amtrak has continuing ADA responsibility, including by installing additional PIDS as set forth in its plan and in Exhibit 2, and completing building, passenger platform, and parking construction in accordance with the ADA and the DOT Standards (dimensions are subject to conventional industry tolerances, except where the requirement is stated as a range with specific minimum and maximum end points, pursuant to DOT Standards § 104.1.1), as set forth below.  However, the listed mega stations, while subject to the obligation to be accessible (see Paragraph 8), due to their size and complexity, are exempt from the remediation timelines set forth in this Agreement.3
      1. Amtrak will undertake and complete 100% design4 documents for station accessibility for at least 15 stations (not including stations with only PIDS deficiencies) per year for the duration of this Agreement until the number of stations needing design documents is exhausted.
      2. The Parties agree that Amtrak cannot commence station construction or deploy PIDS until it receives formal approvals, acceptances, permits, consents, and agreements (“Approvals”) from external agencies and third parties that are not within Amtrak’s control.  These may include Approvals from FRA (except for PIDS deployment, which FRA does not review), State Historic Preservation Officers, state environmental regulators, utilities, labor unions, other third parties whose property or legal interests may be affected by the proposed work, or agencies or officials whose approval FRA deems necessary or whose authority Amtrak is subject to with respect to station construction.
      3. Amtrak will initiate the process for obtaining all required Approvals for station construction and PIDS deployment as soon as practicable and in accordance with normal construction and design practices after the completion of the 100% design documents, and from individuals or entities other than FRA, after FRA acceptance (except for PIDS deployment, which FRA does not review).
      4. Amtrak will attempt to obtain all requisite Approvals within 180 days after completion of the 100% design documents.  However, this 180-day timeline is not binding if Amtrak seeks but fails to receive required Approvals within that time period.  Amtrak shall reasonably respond to FRA or any other agency, whose authority Amtrak is subject to with respect to building, passenger platform, PIDS, or parking construction (an “Authorizing Agency”), that has objections or has provided comments requiring a response, and shall comply with all reasonable Authorizing Agency requests related to obtaining Approvals within all applicable time frames.  Amtrak’s time for completing station construction (set forth below) will not begin to run until all required Approvals have been obtained.
    7. Once all required Approvals are finalized, and Amtrak is authorized to begin construction, Amtrak will have 36 months to complete all station construction included in the project’s scope for which Approvals were finalized.  Amtrak will comply with Title II of the ADA and the DOT Standards, subject to this Agreement, in completing alterations to the station facilities for which Amtrak has responsibility, will deploy PIDS (if any), and also will also complete alterations at least to the path of travel from the parking (if provided) or drop-off point for Amtrak passengers to the platform.

    ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan

    1. Amtrak’s ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan outlines the strategy and tasks that Amtrak plans to implement and complete during the following fiscal year (starting on October 1), as well as the tasks planned for the subsequent four fiscal years.  Each year during this Agreement, Amtrak will update its ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan to plan as to how Amtrak will make all of those station facilities for which Amtrak is responsible accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, to the maximum extent feasible.  Amtrak will submit a draft to DOJ and FRA in accordance with deadlines established by FRA.  DOJ will provide any feedback, in writing, within 45 days of receipt.  Amtrak will send the final FRA-approved ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan to DOJ approximately annually, and Amtrak will consider and respond to comments from DOJ on that FRA-approved plan when developing the following year’s ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan.  Amtrak will adopt the ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan each year in accordance with deadlines as established by FRA.
    2. Amtrak will plan its projects so that all of the station facilities for which Amtrak is responsible are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.  Amtrak will use the Prioritization Tool (originally created by FRA and now maintained by Amtrak and which may change from time to time by agreement between Amtrak and FRA).  The Prioritization Tool currently prioritizes the following:
      1. Alterations to station facilities (including buildings, passenger platforms, or parking) that will have a significant impact on access to individuals with disabilities, including: buildings, passenger platforms, or parking with a path-of-travel deficiency; buildings with key amenity deficiencies (such as entrances, restrooms, or ticket counters); inaccessible parking; passenger platforms where level boarding is required by law but does not exist; and stations that have legal deficiencies in the provision of audio and visual messages to passengers with hearing or vision disabilities; and 
      2. Modifications to station facilities at stations with high ridership.

    ADASP Sunset Analysis

    1. Prior to the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak created and produced to DOJ and FRA an ADASP Sunset Analysis based on the current, existing FRA-approved Prioritization Tool that plans and prioritizes major station accessibility projects in its system.  Amtrak will update the ADASP Sunset Analysis in 2022, and if requested by DOJ or FRA again in 2026.  Amtrak will submit the ADASP Sunset Analysis to DOJ and FRA.  Amtrak’s ADASP Sunset Analysis will utilize the Prioritization Tool to identify the remaining accessibility deficiencies at station facilities for which Amtrak is responsible (Exhibit 3) and include a general estimate of the anticipated cost and timing for remediation based on the assumption that Amtrak will not face material obstacles in obtaining Approvals or in the remediation/construction project.

    ADA Training

    1. Amtrak alleges it has always had a robust, multifaceted ADA training program.  Prior to the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak developed a training program for its customer-facing employees whose primary job requirements include interaction with passengers, i.e., Conductors and Assistant Conductors, Customer Service Representatives, Station/Ticket Agents, Customer Service staff, Red Caps, Ushers, Gatemen, Baggage Handlers, Service Attendants, Lead Service Attendants, Train Attendants, and Reservation Sales Agents (“Covered Employees”), on ADA requirements as Amtrak determined are applicable and appropriate to their respective job functions and work locations, including training on providing appropriate assistance to passengers with disabilities.  Amtrak provided these ADA training materials to DOJ for its review, DOJ provided written feedback, and Amtrak made changes as appropriate.  Prior to the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak has commenced training for Covered Employees, and will prioritize Conductors and Assistant Conductors.  Training may be live, or in the form of written, computer-based, or other reasonable means of training.  Absent circumstances reasonably outside of Amtrak’s control, e.g., an extended leave of absence, all Covered Employees will be provided with such training within three years of commencement of training, and approximately every two years thereafter throughout the duration of this Agreement.
    2. Amtrak will provide ADA training to newly hired Covered Employees within 60 days of their start date as a Covered Employee in a relevant position absent circumstances reasonably outside of Amtrak’s control or, if the relevant training for the particular position is already scheduled to occur within 120 days of their start date, then by that date.
    3. Amtrak will maintain records showing the dates and length of training, instructors, and attendees, including job titles.
    4. For Covered Employees who do not receive training within the applicable timeframes (e.g., due to medical leave of absence, or other circumstances causing them to miss and/or be unable to attend the training), Amtrak will provide training to such persons within 60 days of their availability (for instance, from their full-time return from leave).

    ADA Complaint Procedures

    1. Amtrak’s Customer Relations Department and, as applicable, its Office of EEO Compliance (a/k/a the Office of HR Compliance), which handles civil rights issues, including ADA Complaints from passengers or potential passengers with disabilities, will identify, track, and respond to ADA Complaints made or referred to the Customer Relations Department or Office of EEO Compliance, as described below.  An “ADA Complaint” is defined as an ADA-related complaint made by or on behalf of a passenger or potential passenger with a disability.  Amtrak will not be in violation of this Agreement for any issues related to the handling or maintaining of an ADA Complaint unless the ADA Complaint alleges facts that, if true, would constitute a violation of the ADA.  Within 30 days of the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak will ensure its website provides contact information for submitting ADA Complaints and feedback (including a telephone number, mailing address, and an electronic mail address or electronic link).  These complaint procedures apply only to complaints directed to Amtrak, and do not, for example, apply to complaints directed or brought to DOJ, DOT, FRA, or some other third party.
    2. Amtrak will continue to accept ADA Complaints.  Amtrak’s Customer Relations Department or the Office of EEO Compliance, as applicable, will confirm receipt to the complainant of each ADA Complaint that is submitted through the assigned electronic mail address or electronic link through Amtrak.com as established pursuant to Paragraph 24 above within five business days, absent circumstances reasonably beyond the control of Amtrak.  ADA Complaints received by Amtrak’s Customer Relations Department by letter with author address information provided will be acknowledged in writing within 30 business days from the first business day it was received, absent circumstances reasonably beyond Amtrak’s control.  Amtrak’s Customer Relations Department will respond to ADA Complaints within 45 days after receiving the complaint, or will communicate to the complainant why more time is needed to respond.  For ADA Complaints handled by the Office of EEO Compliance, that office will send the complainant a final written response within 45 days after receiving the complaint, or will communicate to the complainant why more time is needed to respond.
    3. ADA Complaints received by the Customer Relations Department will be maintained in a format that tracks: (A) each ADA Complaint; (B) the response, resolution, or referral of the ADA Complaint to the Office of EEO Compliance; and (C) where provided by the Complainant: the name of the complainant, the date of the incident, the train or thruway bus number/route or reservation number, and the location (e.g., address or station).  Amtrak will implement and maintain a document retention policy to retain this ADA Complaint information for the duration of this Agreement.  This information shall be made available within a reasonable period of time to the Vice President of Stations, Properties & Accessibility (“VPA”) (see Paragraphs 29-31) or the VPA’s designee, as well as upon request to DOJ and FRA.  For ADA Complaints handled by Amtrak’s Office of EEO Compliance, similar information (name, contact information, and a description or categorization of the complaint, resolution, and response) will be requested and, if provided, entered and maintained in the database utilized by that Office and similarly will be made available within a reasonable period of time to the VPA or the VPA’s designee, as well as upon request to DOJ and FRA.
    4. The VPA will periodically review the overall handling of ADA complaints by the Customer Relations Department and the Office of EEO Compliance to the extent the VPA believes sufficient, and identify complaint trends relevant to the ADA (see Paragraph 37).
    5. As part of the standard onboarding process, Amtrak will train new customer-facing Customer Relations Department members to handle ADA Complaints in a manner that complies with this Agreement.  Amtrak will also provide feedback, coaching, supervision, and/or discipline where it deems necessary because of a violation of Amtrak’s policy or procedures related to the handling of ADA Complaints.

    Amtrak Office of the Vice President of Stations, Properties & Accessibility

    1. For the duration of this Agreement, Amtrak will maintain its Office of the Vice President of Stations, Properties & Accessibility and a VPA to head this Office.  Over the course of this Agreement, the VPA position could become vacant.  In such a situation, Amtrak will in good faith work to fill the position.  Should more than two weeks pass, one or more persons will be assigned to act in a temporary capacity over this Office until the VPA position is filled.  This Office will be responsible for coordinating Amtrak’s efforts to comply with Title II of the ADA and this Agreement, including the passenger-related ADA efforts of Amtrak across all of its departments, with the authority to evaluate systemic ADA-trends and recommend systemic changes to remedy any ADA Complaint trends. 
    2. The VPA currently reports to Amtrak’s Executive Vice President, Strategy & Planning, and serves as a liaison and resource to senior Amtrak management on Title II of the ADA and this Agreement.  Should the VPA reporting structure change in the future, Amtrak will select the appropriate Executive Vice President to whom the VPA will report, and will notify DOJ of the change within a reasonable time.  The VPA will convene bi-monthly meetings of Amtrak’s ADA Executive Oversight Committee (or its equivalent), will invite Amtrak Vice Presidents and managers the VPA believes are necessary for the meeting and to comply with this Agreement, and will maintain minutes at all meetings, to be provided to DOJ and FRA, upon request. 
    3. The VPA will have general oversight responsibility for Amtrak’s work toward improved compliance with Title II of the ADA and compliance with this Agreement, including, for ADA projects, priorities, and issues, and, although not required by this Agreement, may also have responsibility for real estate matters.  The VPA will provide to relevant Amtrak management overall direction for Amtrak’s compliance with Title II of the ADA, with the assistance of other relevant Amtrak personnel; propose funding levels and timeframes for the ADASP; recommend and approve recommendations of proposed projects to be funded in the ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan that will go to Amtrak’s ADA Executive Oversight Committee (or its equivalent); and recommend a target date for when Amtrak will complete the ADA stations remediation work set forth in the ADASP Sunset Analysis.  The VPA (or, at Amtrak’s discretion, the President/CEO or an appropriate Executive Vice President) will provide regular status updates to Amtrak’s Board of Directors at least three times annually regarding Amtrak’s implementation of and compliance with this Agreement.

    FRA and DOJ Monitoring

    1. Upon advance written notice, Amtrak will provide FRA and DOJ reasonable access to relevant information that each does not already possess through Amtrak staff, facilities, and documents to assist them in evaluating Amtrak’s compliance with this Agreement.  This reasonable access includes attendance by up to two designated DOJ representatives at meetings of Amtrak’s ADA Executive Oversight Committee (or its equivalent).  The Parties and FRA will continue to reasonably cooperate with one another.  FRA and DOJ will be permitted to make reasonable unannounced inspections and visits of Amtrak operations and facilities, to the extent such operations or facilities are open to the public (and the visit or inspection does not create a safety issue) during the course of implementing this Agreement, including reasonable, unannounced testing.
    2. FRA has regulatory oversight (to the extent permitted by law) over the relevant operations of Amtrak.  This oversight responsibility means that FRA may, in its discretion:
      1. Review Amtrak’s progress in making stations accessible, including thorough review of the documents provided by Amtrak and attending bi-monthly ADA Executive Oversight Committee (or its equivalent) meetings;
      2. Review and accept Amtrak’s annual ADASP Five Year Strategic Plan and ADASP Sunset Analysis;
      3. Review and accept station design documents and construction plans for each relevant facility alteration Amtrak undertakes or allows to be undertaken;
      4. Visit Amtrak stations to determine whether Amtrak has made stations for which it is responsible readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities in accordance with the DOT Standards and this Agreement;
      5. Observe on-site Amtrak operations related to passengers with disabilities and make recommendations for Amtrak’s compliance with the ADA and this Agreement; and
      6. Monitor, observe, or conduct inspections permitted by the terms of its grant with Amtrak or by law.
    3. Amtrak currently uses qualified third-party contractors to conduct post-construction ADA assessments upon substantial completion for new or altered station facilities.  For the duration of the Agreement, Amtrak will continue to conduct these post-construction ADA assessments, identify any issues that remain out of ADA compliance, and develop a plan to remediate any such issues.  On an on-going basis, Amtrak will provide each completed post-construction ADA assessment to DOJ and FRA, and will provide to FRA information sufficient to describe Amtrak’s plans to remediate any issues that remain out of ADA compliance.  Upon request by DOJ, Amtrak will provide a current list of approved third-party contractors who may conduct post-construction ADA assessments.

    Thruway Bus Service

    1. Any contract to provide all or part of Amtrak’s dedicated thruway bus service (fixed route) during this Agreement will include the language related to ADA compliance in a form substantially similar to that which was approved by DOJ on September 11, 2018, requiring each front-line bus to be equipped with a working wheelchair lift, to undergo regular pre-trip inspections, and to have its wheelchair lifts, securements, and restraint devices maintained.  This provision does not preclude Amtrak from incorporating additional language or provisions into its bus contracts.  In the event that this language is rejected by a vendor, DOJ will reasonably and in good faith work with Amtrak and potentially, but only at Amtrak’s request, the dedicated thruway bus service vendor to attempt to formulate acceptable language and find a reasonable alternative to the proposed language.

    Document Maintenance and Reporting Requirements

    1. Amtrak must maintain the following documents, to the extent they exist, for the duration of this Agreement:
      1. Station-Specific Documents.  For each station: (1) the ADA Assessment of the particular station’s relevant facilities; (2) final designs and plans for ADA compliance; (3) documents regarding ADA construction and remediation (including bids, proposals, awards, approved plans, revisions, change orders, and close-out documents); and (4) descriptions of how passengers with disabilities will be boarded and de-boarded.
      2. Compliance with Agreement.  Current reports showing Amtrak’s progress in making its stations accessible, including Amtrak’s: (1) schedule for performing remedial work under this Agreement; (2) ADASP Five Year Strategic Plans and ADASP Sunset Analysis; and (3) station accessibility priority lists.
      3. Complaints.  All customer ADA Complaints logged in the complaint database (see Paragraph 26); and
      4. Training.  The information maintained by Amtrak related to its ADA Training (see Paragraphs 20-23).
    2. Six months after the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak will submit to DOJ the data and records identified in Paragraph 36 for the most recent six months and will provide a written report listing its progress implementing this Agreement as well as a summary from the VPA of any complaint trends relevant to Title II of the ADA and efforts made to address the trends (see Paragraph 27) (the “ADA Progress Report”).  Thereafter, Amtrak will submit to DOJ the data and records identified in Paragraph 36, to the extent not previously provided, and the ADA Progress Report on a bi-annual basis.  Amtrak will make the ADA Progress Reports available to the public.
    3. For the duration of this Agreement, upon request by DOJ, Amtrak will meet once or twice a year with DOJ, at DOJ’s discretion, to discuss the progress of the ADASP and compliance with this Agreement, including, as needed, the status of on-going work under the ADASP, challenges to accomplishing that work, proposed design and construction activities (including scope, schedule, budget, and challenges), and any proposed ADA responsibility changes to Exhibit 2 or Exhibit 3.
    4. Compensation Fund

    5. Retention of Administrator.  Within 28 days of the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak will obtain bids from qualified third-party settlement administrators and select one Administrator, subject to the United States’ approval, to administer the settlement and Qualified Settlement Fund (“Fund”).  Amtrak will pay the Administrator up to $127,500.00 flat rate5 (which is an amount separate from the claims monies paid into the Fund).  The Administrator will be required to comply with the provisions of this Agreement applicable to the Administrator.  The Administrator shall keep the Parties reasonably informed via e-mail of steps taken in the administration of the Fund.  The Administrator shall provide regular reporting during and after the Claims Period (see Paragraph 41) as follows: 1) a report approximately three weeks into the Claims Period; 2) reports bi-weekly until the Claims Period closes; 3) reports bi-weekly during the Claims Review period (see Paragraph 46); and 4) a final report on the number of claims paid.  The Administrator will provide for individuals seeking to be compensated by the Fund (“Claimants”) a Fund-specific website, email, facsimile, and toll-free telephone number (and accompanying TTY text telephone number) to ensure that Claimants can contact the Administrator and submit their claims.  The Administrator shall maintain the confidentiality of all non-public materials received in connection with its duties under the Agreement, except with the parties or unless reasonably necessary to be disclosed (i.e., for tax reporting purposes).  The Administrator shall conduct follow-up as needed, as well as follow-up as agreed to by the Parties, to determine whether a Claimant is a qualified individual who meets the eligibility requirements and has appropriately and timely completed all the procedures for payment entitling them to compensation under the Agreement (“Eligible Person”), and calculate the amount of compensation for each Eligible Person based on the requirements in the Agreement.
    6. Notice.  Amtrak will publish a Notice of Americans with Disabilities Act Settlement (“Notice”), comprised of the text and images in Exhibit 4, as follows:
      1. Amtrak will publish and maintain the Notice on its website in an accessible and conspicuous location for the duration of the Claims Period, described herein with the description “Americans with Disabilities Act Claims Fund.”  Such posting shall be in HTML text and/or otherwise accessible to individuals with visual impairments. 
      2. Within 60 days of the Effective Date of this Agreement, and monthly for the duration of the Claims Period, Amtrak will tweet on its Twitter account (@Amtrak) and post on its Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/amtrak) (with the International Symbol of Accessibility), the following text and a unique link (provided by the Administrator) to the Notice on its website: “We have reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice @CivilRights to resolve station inaccessibility that impacts our passengers with disabilities.  To learn more about this agreement, including the Compensation Fund for certain passengers with mobility impairments, visit: [unique link to Administrator’s settlement fund site]”.
      3. Within 60 days of the Effective Date of this Agreement, Amtrak will place at least a ¼-page advertisements of the Notice in USA Today (Friday circulation; display) the text of which is attached as Exhibit 4.  Amtrak will only publish Exhibit 4 one time.
    7. Claims Period.  The Claims Period for Claimants to timely file claims will be the 120-day period from the posting of the Notice in USA Today (“Claims Period”).  The Administrator will promptly notify a Claimant if there is an issue(s) with their claim that can be corrected, i.e., missing information or an unsigned form.  Claimants may attempt to cure a claim at any time during the Claims Period as well for an additional 30-day period thereafter (the “Cure Period”) so long as the initial claim was timely filed during the Claims Period.  The Administrator will respond to any inquiries from Claimants and will contact the Parties should there be an issue to which the Administrator cannot respond, e.g., because clarity is required by the Administrator from the Parties to accept or reject any claim.  Amtrak has the right to instruct the Administrator to accept flawed and/or late claims.
    8. Establishment of Compensation Fund.  Within 21 business days after the closure of the Cure Period and calculation of all payments due, Amtrak will deposit with the Administrator a maximum of $2,250,000 for the Fund.  The Administrator will have access to the Fund for the purpose of compensating Eligible Persons.
    9. Eligible Persons.  To be entitled to relief, a Claimant must meet the eligibility requirements and timely submit a Claim Form.  Monetary relief will only be provided to Eligible Persons who have been determined by the Administrator, as set forth in this Agreement and as approved by the United States, to meet the following Eligibility Requirements: (1) the individual is mobility impaired; (2) the individual was harmed because of accessibility issues at the stations listed in Exhibit 5 (“Issue Stations”) between July 27, 2013 and the Effective Date of this Agreement; (3) the Administrator is satisfied that the individual lived at, visited, or desired to visit a place closer to the Issue Station(s) than an accessible, alternative Amtrak station within the applicable time period (based on the information collected in Paragraph 44); (4) the individual declares under penalty of perjury that the information they have provided in the Claim Forms and/or to the Administrator is true and correct (“Declaration”); and (5) the individual executes the release of claims required in Paragraph 45, as described in Exhibit 6.  Any additional instructions to the Administrator regarding eligibility and Eligible Persons shall be agreed upon by the Parties.
    10. Proof Necessary for Claims:  Anyone who believes they qualify as an Eligible Person must submit a timely Claim Form and Declaration to the Administrator including the following information, to be incorporated into a Claim Form, which Form will include an assurance from the Claims Administrator that all collected information will be kept confidential:
      1. Contact Information
        1. Name
        2. Mailing Address
        3. Phone
        4. E-mail (optional)
        5. Preferred means of contact and any anticipated change in contact information with the approximate date of the contact information changing.

      5. Declaration
        1. I, ____________________, declare under penalty of perjury that: a) I am 18 years or older and am either i) submitting this on my own behalf or ii) I am the guardian of a person with a disability (“Ward”) who is an Eligible Person, and b) that all of the information in this Claim Form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
        2. Signature and Printed Name and, where applicable, the printed name of the Ward.
        3. Date
    11. Release Required.  Each Claimant, as part of the Claim Form, will be required to sign a release of claims (“the Release”) against Amtrak for any issues addressed in this Agreement and any related claim for a violation of the ADA, and similar state or local laws.  The Release will clearly state that it is not effective unless the Claimant is deemed an Eligible Person, and not unless the check is negotiated (i.e., cashed or deposited) by the Eligible Person, after which time the Administrator will provide the Claim Forms and Releases to the Parties.
    12. Claims Review.  Upon the expiration of the Claims Period, the Administrator shall finalize the determination regarding which Claimants are Eligible Persons with valid claims for compensation and calculate the amounts to be paid to those Eligible Persons (see Paragraph 47).  No individual, other than the Parties, may request a review by the District Court in the underlying Civil Action (the “Court”) or the Administrator of these determinations.
    13. Compensation Level Criteria.  Compensation levels will be two tiers, one for Eligible Persons who lived closer to an Issue Station than another Amtrak station (“Tier 1 Claimants”) and one for Eligible Persons who traveled to or were deterred from travel to an Issue Station (“Tier 2 Claimants”).  The compensation amount for Tier 1 Claimants will be triple that of Tier 2 Claimants, i.e., Tier 1 Claimants’ claims will be worth 3 points, and Tier 2 Claimants’ claims will be worth 1 point.  In no event shall any Claimant be entitled to more than 3 points.  Upon the expiration of the Claims Period and the completion of follow-up by the Administrator with outstanding Claimants, the Administrator will assign each Eligible Person either 1 or 3 points based on the Tier into which their claim falls.  The Administrator will then total the number of points (“Total Points”) by adding the points assigned to all Eligible Persons.  Next, the Administrator will determine the preliminary dollar amount per point (“Preliminary Point Value) by dividing the total dollar amount of the Fund ($2.25 million) by the number of Total Points.  If the Preliminary Point Value does not exceed $833.33, then the Preliminary Point Value will be the Final Point Value.  If the Preliminary Point Value exceeds $833.33, then the Final Point Value will be reduced to $833.33.  The compensation amount to each Tier 1 Claimant will equal the final Point Value multiplied by three.  The compensation amount to each Tier 2 Claimant will equal the Final Point Value.  Amtrak will retain or have reverted to it the balance of the Fund for use in furtherance of the ADASP. 
    14. Notification of Payment.  In its final report, the Administrator will include a list of the dates and amount of payments made to Eligible Persons.  Eligible Persons who receive payment are responsible for any taxes due on the payment by them and will receive a Form 1099 from the Administrator for the payment made which shall be sent to the address provided by the Eligible Person where applicable.
    15. Uncashed Checks.  Checks will expire no sooner than 90 days from issuance.  In the event that there remain uncashed checks after reasonable efforts by the Administrator to contact Eligible Persons (including, for example, skip-trace searches), the Administrator shall send those payments to the state as required by the law of that state.  Should there be no such law, then the residual amount will be returned to Amtrak, for use in furtherance of the ADASP.  In the event that the Eligible Person requests a new check from either Party or the Administrator within the one year period following the issuance of the initial check, a duplicate check will be provided so long as the check was not cashed, and the person states that the original check was lost and will be destroyed in the event it is found.

  4. IMPLEMENTATION AND ENFORCEMENT
    1. Within 14 days of Amtrak complying with the Notice requirements of Paragraph 40(C), the Parties shall jointly move the Court to dismiss the underlying Civil Action with prejudice, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2), subject to reinstatement as set forth in Paragraph 51.  The joint motion will include this Agreement as an Exhibit.
    2. If the United States believes that Amtrak has breached any provision of this Agreement, then the United States may move to restore the Civil Action to the active docket of this Court for the purposes of resolving any such claims of breach.  If the United States makes a claim of breach, Amtrak consents to and agrees not to contest the United States’ motion to restore the present Civil Action to the Court’s active docket.  Alternatively, the United States may bring a civil action for breach of this Agreement or any provision thereof, or for a violation of Title II of the ADA, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, and may in such action seek to have the Court impose any remedy authorized at law or equity.  Before seeking Court involvement, the United States will give written notice (including reasonable, detailed particulars) to Amtrak of the alleged violations and the basis for the alleged violations (the “Breach Notice”). 6  Amtrak must respond to this Breach Notice as soon as practicable but no later than 30 days thereafter.  The United States and Amtrak will negotiate in good faith to resolve the allegations in a timely manner and will then (i) agree on any necessary or required actions to be taken by Amtrak, and any reasonable extension of time, (ii) agree that no additional actions are necessary or required by Amtrak, or (iii) disagree on matters set forth in the Breach Notice.  If the Parties disagree or are unable to reach a mutually acceptable resolution within 60 days of Amtrak’s response, the United States may seek court action as described above.  During the 60 days, the Parties will make good faith attempts to resolve the matter, including through in- person meetings and/or with a neutral person/party.  The Breach Notice must be provided by certified mail to Amtrak’s Chief Legal Officer (by the then current name of such person) and General Counsel (by the then current name of such person), One Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20001, with a copy sent by electronic and certified mail to Anne Marie Estevez and Beth Joseph, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, 200 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 5300, Miami, FL 33131-2339.
    3. Amtrak will not be in violation of this Agreement where Amtrak’s delay to make a station facility accessible is due to a private entity’s failure to provide written consent or approval required for Amtrak to perform its compliance activities on the property (including a private freight company owner of a passenger platform’s refusal or delay in providing written consent for Amtrak to construct a passenger platform that allows for level-entry boarding where required by 49 C.F.R. § 37.42), as long as Amtrak notifies the private entity of its obligation to cooperate under 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(C) and 49 C.F.R. § 37.57 and the private entity refuses, obstructs, or otherwise causes delays, and Amtrak subsequently notifies DOJ through its reporting obligations as set forth in this Agreement of the private entity’s refusal, obstruction, or delay in providing the needed written consent.  DOJ may argue that the failure to receive reasonable cooperation required by 42 U.S.C. § 12162(e)(2)(C) shall not be a defense to a claim of discrimination under the ADA but also may agree that the obstruction, including obstruction that causes the safety of Amtrak employees to be at risk, may be a defense to compliance with this Agreement.  Once the private entity cooperates, and subject to exceptions in this Agreement, then Amtrak must make that station facility accessible in accordance with the DOT Standards and this Agreement. 
    4. For the duration of this Agreement, the United States may also seek compensation in the future for individuals with disabilities aggrieved by non-compliance with this Agreement by restoring the present Civil Action to the Court’s active docket, consistent with Paragraph 51.  The parties agree the Court should have jurisdiction to decide any related compensation claims brought by the United States, and any defenses by Amtrak to any such compensation claims.
    5. Failure by either party to enforce any provision or deadline of this Agreement is not a waiver by either party to enforce any provision or deadline in this Agreement.
    6. The Parties agree that, as of the Effective Date of this Agreement, litigation is not “reasonably foreseeable” concerning the matters described in Paragraph 1.  To the extent that either Party previously implemented a litigation hold to preserve documents, electronically stored information (ESI), or things related to the matters described in Paragraph 1, the Party is no longer required to maintain such a litigation hold.  Nothing in this paragraph relieves either Party of any other obligations imposed by this Agreement.
    7. This Agreement will remain in effect for three years from the Effective Date of this Agreement, except for the terms related to station accessibility (Paragraphs 8-19, 29-31, 34, 36 (A) and (B), and 38).  The terms on station accessibility, to the extent that the Parties do not mutually agree to change them and/or the law changes such that the provision is not required, will remain in effect for 10 years from the Effective Date of this Agreement.  However, this Agreement will terminate earlier, by consent of the Parties, if all existing stations for which Amtrak is responsible are made readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs, per the DOT Standards.
    8. This Agreement, including Exhibits, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties relating to the Civil Action and Department of Justice No. 204-16-128, and no other previous statement, promise, or agreement, either written or oral, made by either Party or agents of either Party, that is not contained in this written Agreement will be enforceable.  This Agreement does not purport to remedy any other potential violations of the ADA or any other federal law not included in the Agreement and its attached and incorporated exhibits.  This Agreement does not affect Amtrak’s continuing responsibility to comply with all applicable aspects of Title II of the ADA.
    9. If any term of this Agreement is determined by any Court to be unenforceable, the other terms of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
    10. Nothing in this Agreement will preclude the United States from filing a separate action under the ADA for any alleged violation not covered by this Agreement.  Before filing a separate action under the ADA for any alleged violations not covered by this Agreement, the United States will give written notice (including reasonable, detailed particulars) to Amtrak of the alleged violations and the basis for the alleged violations (the “Violations Notice”).  Amtrak must respond to the Violations Notice as soon as practicable but no later than 30 days thereafter.  The United States and Amtrak will negotiate in good faith to resolve the allegations in a timely manner and will then (i) agree on any necessary or required actions to be taken by Amtrak, and any reasonable extension of time, (ii) agree that no additional actions are necessary or required by Amtrak, or (iii) disagree on matters set forth in the Violations Notice.  If the Parties disagree or are unable to reach a mutually acceptable resolution within 60 days of Amtrak’s response and after making good faith attempts to resolve the matter, including through in person meetings and/or with a neutral person/party, the United States may seek court action.  The Violations Notice must be provided by certified mail to Amtrak’s Chief Legal Officer (by the then current name of such person) and General Counsel (by the then current name of such person), One Massachusetts Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20001 with a copy sent by electronic and certified mail to Anne Marie Estevez and Beth Joseph, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, 200 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 5300, Miami, FL 33131-2339.
    11. In entering into this Agreement, the United States and Amtrak will bear their own costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees in this matter, up to the date the case is restored to the Court’s active docket or any future case is filed related to this Agreement.
    12. The Parties can amend this Agreement by mutual written consent, and any time limits for performance or other obligations imposed by this Agreement may be extended or abolished by the mutual written consent of the Parties.
    13. The Parties agree that the United States District Court for the District of Columbia shall have jurisdiction and be a proper venue for disputes concerning this Agreement between the United Stated and Amtrak.  Amtrak consents to venue and personal jurisdiction before the Court. This Agreement is intended to exclusively provide the ability to enforce this Agreement by Amtrak and the United States.  It is not intended to provide any rights to any third party beneficiaries.
    14. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each copy, email, or pdf of which will be considered an original and taken together constitute one agreement.
    15. The Effective Date of this Agreement is the date of the last signature below. 

1 For purposes of this Agreement, “station” means a transportation facility, “located appurtenant to a right-of-way on which intercity… rail transportation is operated, where such portion is used by the general public and is related to the provision of such transportation,” including buildings (designated waiting areas, ticketing areas, restrooms, etc.), passenger platforms, and parking.  42 U.S.C. § 12161(6); 49 C.F.R. § 37.3.  

2 Amtrak is not responsible for all facilities at all stations it serves in the United States.  The entity responsible for accessibility compliance is designated in the ADA and its regulations.  See 42 U.S.C. § 12161(5); 49 C.F.R. § 37.49 (responsible person).  Amtrak is responsible for making some or all station facilities accessible at over 400 of the approximately 514 stations it serves.  See Exhibit 3.  The remaining station facilities are the responsibility of other public entities.  42 U.S.C. § 12161(5); 49 C.F.R. § 37.49.  The Parties will update Exhibit 3 periodically throughout the duration of the Agreement.  Amtrak will provide DOJ with any relevant changes approximately bi-annually and the Parties will agree on any corresponding changes to ADA responsibility for station facilities.

3 To the extent Amtrak has legal responsibility for ADA compliance at any of the following mega stations (or becomes legally responsible for them in the future), these stations are exempt from all remediation timelines set forth in this Agreement:  New York Penn Station (NY); Washington Union Station (DC); Philadelphia 30th St. Station (PA); Chicago Union Station (IL); Los Angeles Union Station (CA); Boston South Station (MA); Sacramento Station (CA); Baltimore Penn Station (MD); Bakersfield (CA); Albany-Rensselaer Station (NY); Emeryville (CA); Providence Station (RI); Seattle King Street Station (WA); San Diego Downtown Station (CA).

4 “100% design” is the accepted term by Amtrak and FRA for the stage of design development where the design defines the full scope of ADA improvements required at a station.  At 100% design, Amtrak develops a final construction cost estimate.  FRA and the host railroad (if required) perform an official review of the 100% design and submit questions or requested changes to the 100% design to Amtrak.  If necessary, revisions to the 100% design are made as part of the Approval process.

5 Including this flat rate amount does not relieve Amtrak from its obligation to compensate Eligible Persons consistent with this Agreement through the Administrator.

6 The Parties acknowledge and agree that noncompliance with any agency guidance documents may not be asserted as a basis for establishing a violation of this Agreement or applicable law.  However, nothing shall limit either Party to this Agreement from making arguments about its interpretation of Title II of the ADA and its implementing regulations, including interpretations previously articulated in agency guidance documents.

1 “Partial” is used to indicate instances where multiple platform or parking facilities exist and Amtrak does not have responsibility for all of them, or where Amtrak occupies just part of a larger station structure.

2 “Shared” responsibility is noted where Amtrak and commuter rail service both have responsibility for a rail station element.

Exhibit 4 - Notice of Amtrak Claims Fund Under the ADA

Amtrak has entered into a Settlement Agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to resolve a lawsuit brought under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”).  The Settlement Agreement resolves alleged violations of the ADA.

If you were harmed by Amtrak’s lack of accessible transportation services between July 27, 2013, and [insert Effective Date of the Settlement Agreement] you may be eligible to receive payment from a compensation fund established by Amtrak.
To be eligible for consideration for possible payment, you must submit a claim by [insert date].  You may obtain information on how to submit a claim in several ways: (1) by sending an email with your name, address, and telephone number to [insert email address to be designated by Fund Administrator], or (2) by calling the Fund Administrator at [insert toll free voice and TTY telephone numbers to be designated by Settlement Administrator]. 

A copy of the Settlement Agreement between the U.S. Department of Justice and Amtrak is available at [website].  For further information about the ADA, visit www.ada.gov or call the Department of Justice’s toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 (voice) or 1-800-514-0383 (TTY).

Exhibit 6 - Individual Release of Claims

If I, __________________________, am found to be an Eligible Person who participates in the Compensation Fund, by timely submitting a Claims Form that is approved by the Administrator and negotiating (e.g., cashing or depositing) a settlement check, then I agree to fully release and forever discharge the National Passenger Railroad Corporation (“Amtrak”) from any and all liability for any claim, legal or equitable, that may exist or have accrued as of the date I sign this Individual Release of Claims, including any claims under Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, any state or local law, or any regulation, standard, or guideline promulgated under any such law, I may have against Amtrak arising out of the facts identified in the United States’ Complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, No. XX-cv-XXXX (D.D.C.), including all claims, known or unknown, relating to Amtrak’s failure to make existing stations in its intercity rail system readily accessible to and usable by individual with disabilities by no later than July 26, 2010.

UNKNOWN CLAIMS/CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542: To ensure a full and complete release and discharge of the claims described above, each Person who submits a Claims Form confirms that he or she has been advised to consult with legal counsel, is familiar with, and expressly waives any and all rights conferred by California Civil Code Section 1542, or by other statute or common law principles of similar effect, which provides: “A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.”
