Wheelchair Friendly Vehicles
Looking for wheelchair friendly transport in Singapore? Read on for 3 types of wheelchair friendly vehicles.
1. Wheelchair transport buses
Medical Assistance4u has been providing wheelchair bus transportation services since 2019.
Our wheelchair transport buses are equipped with a wheelchair lifter and sufficient space to comfortably transport up to 7 passengers alongside the wheelchair user.
2. Sedan cars with sufficient boot space
Sedan cars are 4-door passenger cars with a boot compartment that is separate from the passenger compartment. Cars with a boot compartment large enough to accommodate a wheelchair can be used to transport both the wheelchair user and their wheelchair from place to place.
All taxi cars in Singapore can fit a foldable wheelchair in their boot.
In Japan, due to a rapidly ageing population, a whole new category of vehicles called 福祉車両 (meaning ‘Welfare Vehicles’) or Welcab in Japan, were created to make it easier to transport wheelchair-bound people. Recognizing that it was difficult to lift up and carry disabled people even if you’re physically strong, ‘Welcab’ technology has evolved to enable easy access by simply pushing in the wheelchair occupant straight into the car, with some utilizing motorized winches or lifts.
