by Thebus Center contractor

Disability vans or wheelchair vans are vehicles designed for accommodating the people in a wheelchair. These are versatile vans used for transporting disabled people to ensure their transport convenience. There are mainly two types of modifications that are done with these vans. The first one is where the person in the wheelchair is a driver and second when an individual is a passenger. The interior of these vans offer easy accessibility for the wheelchair to enter with the help of lift or ramp.

The wheelchair accessible vans are undergoing with two modifications which we have discussed briefly below:-

1. When the individual is a driver

  • The floor portion is lowered and external access is added like a ramp lift or turning seat.
  • The seats are comparatively bigger than standard vans because vans roof are
  • raised about 10 inches
  • If the roofs of vans are not high then the van floor is lowered
  • Wheelchair lifts are both manual and automated. Automated lifts are beneficial for those who face difficulty in operating manual lifts.

2. When the disabled individual is a passenger

  • Van floor is reinforced and seats are added
  • Ramp or hoist is installed
