Clients may not be aware of our ability to offer the facility of executive coaches with disabled access / wheelchair lifts. We are therefore pleased to confirm the following current information, which we hope will provide most of the passengers information required concerning Disabled / Accessible Vehicle Transportation.
Access from the pavement is via a hydraulic chairlift platform, lifting the wheelchair passenger and attendant up to a door in the side of the coach at floor level for easy access.
The adjacent videos show how the chairlift operates;
In addition, passengers with wheelchairs who are able to transfer to conventional coach seats once they have entered the coach via the chairlift can also be accommodated. Once in their seats, their wheelchairs will be folded and stored in the coach's main luggage compartment. Several passengers with wheelchairs can be accommodated in this way.
Please check with us before booking to ensure that your wheelchair is compatible with the restraining mechanisms fitted to our coaches. Should you have any queries concerning the type of wheelchair to be used in transportation, please contact us on 0115 989 4466 where we will be happy to discuss the requirements.
