DOJ Investigating Transit Access in Cedar Rapids

See this story, which begins:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cedar Rapids has opened an investigation into the city of Cedar Rapids’ compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. 
In a letter to Mayor Ron Corbett, the federal prosecutor’s office suggests that the probe centers on access to city buses for disabled people who use wheelchairs. 
The city is asked to produce any record of complaints against it in the last three years related to access to public transportation, “in particular, access to buses by individuals who use wheelchairs and may need additional time to board or exit from a bus.”
