The options are endless when you purchase a wheelchair accessible bus or van from TESCO. Whether looking to accommodate multiple passengers or just a few, TESCO stocks ADA compliant vehicles to get you what you need, fast!
Wheelchair buses and vans are used by a variety of organizations to transport passengers with and without special needs. While there are several mobility companies which offer specialized mobility vans to consumers, TESCO’s vehicles are primarily for commercial use. Nearly all the vehicles offered conform to Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards.
Some vehicles have a wheelchair lift on the side or rear of the bus or van, allowing for wheelchair passenger accessibility. Other vehicles use a lowered-floor design and ramp, which is more comforting to the passengers but costlier than wheelchair lift designs.
Typical seating for wheelchair-accessible buses ranges from 3 passengers to 20 passengers, but larger models can increase the capacity to over 30 passengers.
Buses are usually built with Ford Transit, E350, E450, or F550 chassis. Some full-sized vans are also upfitted to allow for wheelchair occupants- these include the Ford Transit and Dodge Promaster.
When you buy a wheelchair accessible bus from TESCO, you can choose to include other common bus options such as overhead luggage, Wi-Fi, TVs, and more! Typical seats are mid-high seats with arm rests. Seat fabric can come in a variety of colors, but the material is normally easy to clean in case of accidental bowel leakage. There are some seating fabrics that contain nanocide particles which help to control bacteria.
Wheelchair accessible buses may or may not require a Commercial Driver License (CDL), dependent on the size of the vehicle. Your TESCO sales representative can help steer you in the right direction.
