Just about everything at the immigration station (IS) is accessible now, though the grounds are steep so it's ideal if someone who uses a wheelchair can get assistance in the hillier sections of the immigration station. The ferries have ramps and crews from SF or Tiburon can make sure you can get on and off the ferry. Once on the island, the shuttle has wheelchair accessibility (check with the Angel Island Company to confirm). Visitors who wish to walk but don't want to take the stairs up the hill from the ferry dock can take the long way to the immigration station, walking up the road past the Visitors Center before turning left on the main road. It is steeper than a wheelchair ramp, so take this route only if you have someone to push you up the steeper parts. This adds about 1/2 a mile to the shorter but inaccessible walk up the stairs near Ayala Cove.
There are ramps throughout the exterior of the immigration station, which allow access to the different parts of the site, and there is a lift that allows one to get into the historic barracks. Inside, there is an elevator so there is easy access to both floors of the building. Only certain areas like the historic bathrooms in the building are inaccessible. The exterior bathrooms that are open to the public are ADA accessible.
