The Mobility Aids on Board to Improve Lives & Empower All Act seeks to improve the safety and accessibility of air travel for passengers with disabilities. The legislation requires airlines to provide information to passengers to ensure that mobility aids, such as wheelchairs, can be safely transported on flights without the risk of damage. It also mandates the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to report publicly on the types of damage that are routinely seen with mobility aids during air travel. Additionally, the bill calls for a study on the technical and financial feasibility of allowing passengers to directly board a plane in their wheelchair, rather than having to transfer from a wheelchair to an airplane seat, a practice that poses a safety risk. The legislation aims to promote airline accountability and accessibility for passengers with disabilities.
