Which one should I opt for; Side entry OR Rear Entry?
1. Rear Entry Vehicle:
A Rear entrance would offer a larger interior space as compared to the side-entrance. With the rear entrance, you would be able to park your Van/Bus in normal parking zones where NO extra side space would be required. The rear entrance with ramps is usually of lower angles, which helps in an easier entrance for the passenger. For a rear-entry vehicle, the wheelchair passenger would not be able to get to the front seat position. Having said this, if you are looking for budget-friendly options, the rear-entrance vehicles are usually less expensive as compared to the other ones.
2. Side Entry Vehicle:
From the passenger perspective, side-entrance vans offer the best seating options. The passenger would be able to seat in the front positions. It is also easier and convenient for the wheelchair passenger to get in or out of the bus in the side-entrance as compared to the rear entrance. However, you would need a special handicapped parking space to park the vehicle as it would require some space sideways. For a bus service provider, it would be preferred to own a side entry vehicle, as the driver would have better access to the entrance and the passenger would not have to move to the rear side of the vehicle by going into the traffic area making it unsafe for the wheelchair passenger.
How does a wheelchair lift work in a bus?
When a wheelchair passenger arrives, the driver of the bus switches ‘ON’ the power to the lift. Using the remote the lift is brought down to the ground level until it completely rests on the floor.
(NOTE: It is generally advised to use the lifts for loading/unloading on Level Surfaces).
The passenger on the wheelchair is then guided to the platform of the lift. After the wheelchair brakes are engaged, the lift is moved up until it reaches the floor level of the bus. Once the passenger gets into the bus, the lift is then folded back to its compact position and the power to the lift is turned ‘OFF’. A similar procedure is followed for the departure of the passenger. If the lift cannot be used using the remote, there is an option of operating the lift manually using levers. This ensures that the passenger does not have to compromise with anything and his/her journey remains stress-free and relaxed.
