There are many features on wheelchair accessible vans that make them the best choice for special education transportation. Wheelchair accessible vans are easy to use and take up much less gas than the larger special education buses. These vans also have the unique ability to remove the seats to make room for more and more wheelchairs. These removable seats also allow for easy cleaning. You are able to remove the seats and spray out the inside of the van. Along with removable seats, most wheelchair vans also have detachable seat belts that allow for a variety of seating arrangement between wheelchair students and other students.
Wheelchair accessible vans are also very easy to use. The large elevator like mechanism on the side of the van is completely electric and can raised and lowered through the use of button on the side. With the van in park, a drive can lower the wheelchair lift and welcome the student on to the van. As mentioned earlier, removable seat belts allow the driver or teacher to secure the wheelchair wherever he or she fits best in the van. Along with floor attachments, there are also large shoulder seat belts that can secure the child as well as the wheelchair.
