USDOJ: Justice Department Reaches Settlement Agreement with Massachusetts Business Resolving Allegations of Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities


The Justice Department today announced a settlement agreement with Grand Circle LLC, based in Boston, doing business as Grand Circle Travel, to resolve alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ensure that persons with disabilities, including those who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids, are afforded full and equal access to the company’s travel services and facilities.  
 
The settlement agreement resolves an ADA complaint alleging that Grand Circle Travel discriminated against persons with disabilities by cancelling a bus tour reservation by a person with a mobility disability.   The complainant, who used a motorized scooter, alleged that, without offering a reason, Grand Circle Travel cancelled her reservation, made months in advance, although the trip took place with nine additional travelers added shortly before the scheduled departure date.
