4 last-minute wheelchair transport options in Singapore
Singapore has no shortage of convenient and accessible transportation options for wheelchair users – the infrastructure within Singapore is carefully designed to make Singapore a handicapped inclusive country. It is clearly reflected in the designs of public transportation systems and vehicles.
In cases where you find yourself in sudden need for wheelchair transport, here are 5 options to choose from.
The ambulance service in Singapore transports patients in medical emergencies.
In cases where wheelchair-bound patients need medical attention for non-life threatening conditions, a private ambulance can be hired. This option allows those who require support equipment to travel safely with trained medical professionals.
Launched by Grab, GrabAssist Plus provides transport for wheelchair users with their fleet of wheelchair accessible vehicles. Wheelchair users are able to travel from their start point to destination without having to dismount their wheelchairs.
All driver-partners under this programme are also trained by certified care service providers to provide assistance to passengers.
To book a ride, users can download the Grab App and select the GrabAssist Plus option after confirming their destination and pick-up point. This service has a limited capacity of 1 additional seat for any accompanying caregiver.
