If you work with people with disabilities, you realize just how important it is that your transportation equipment lives up to accessibility standards. Legal standards pose a particular challenge, but can be relatively straightforward to understand, if you read legal documentation. But beyond legal requirements are the accessibility requirements of your clientele as well as standards that go above and beyond what is simply necessary from a legal point of view. Here are a few ways that you can ensure that your bus is meeting high accessibility and mobility standards.
Buy a Specialty Bus
The first way to ensure your bus meets accessibility standards is to invest in a bus that is made specifically to serve clients with special mobility needs. Specialty buses are expensive, but for good reason. They are required to meet legal requirements and should have options for more comprehensive accessibility standards as well.
Understand Your Clientele
Whether you provide mobility specifically for groups that require a specialty bus or your services are provided to a range of potential clients who may have mobility issues, it’s possible to keep an eye on what the clients need from a specialty bus. Not every bus will need a wheelchair lift, but some form of wheelchair accommodation should be installed.
Work with an Experienced Bus Customization Company
If you are unsure and feel that you are not experienced enough if accessibility standards, you can easily get great advice and assistance from a customization company.
