Broward County, FL (AHN) - Broward County commissioners have reached an agreement that makes public transportation more accessible to handicapped riders.

On Tuesday, County commissioners agreed to pay more than $10 million over the next five years to make bus stops more accessible to disabled residents.

The agreement comes amidst a civil lawsuit against the county over almost two-thirds of its 5,000 bus stops not meeting federal accessibility standards.

Congress enacted the disability rights laws 16 years ago.
