Accessible Bus Features

Lift:
A platform that deploys from the base of the Bus and raises or lowers a passenger to the floor or curb level.
 
Ramp:
An angled platform that deploys from the floor of the bus to assist passengers in boarding.
 
Kneeler:
For persons who have difficulty stepping up, buses will “kneel” for you. This feature lowers the front step of the bus    
and makes it easier to board the bus
 
Securement Area:
An area inside the bus designated for riders using mobility devices. Straps and clamps ensure a safe ride. There are two securement areas on each of our buses. If you need to use the lift, ramp, or “kneeler” to help you board, just ask the operator. 
 
Route identification devices:
Assist the visually and hearing impaired.  
           
New bus shelters:
With wider spaces for wheelchairs and better lighting.
