The Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act of 1990 required businesses offering public services such as restaurants and stores to make their facilities as accessible as possible to people who use wheelchairs or have some other type of disability that limits mobility. The purpose of the legislation was to ensure that people with a physical handicap have the same access to public services as those without a disability. This includes both public and private transportation.
Under the provisions of the ADA, providers of public transportation must remove barriers to accessibility for disabled individuals wherever reasonable. Atlantic Limousine & Transportation has long offered a handicap bus compliant with all ADA regulations. The transportation section of the ADA act requires transportation companies to purchase handicap-accessible buses whenever available and upgrade existing buses to provide handicap access if mechanically possible. Title III of the act outlines the same requirements for companies that provide private transportation services such as Atlantic Limousine & Transportation.
What to Expect When You Reserve a Handicap Bus
Our company is pleased to offer several ADA approved handicap bus options. Our smaller bus seats up to 24 passengers. It comes equipped with a wheelchair lift and other boarding devices to help those with mobility challenges board the bus in a safe and efficient manner. The chauffeurs who drive our ADA compliant buses have completed specialized training in how to handle the equipment. Our drivers also know the Atlanta area very well and can point out many interesting landmarks on your drive. Other features on our 24-passenger handicap bus include:
- DVD players
- USB power outlets
- PA system for announcements
- Wi-Fi Internet access
We are also happy to offer a 48-passenger motor coach with full handicap accessibility. It comes complete with a wheelchair ramp and all the amenities of our smaller handicap bus. The reclining seats in both buses are comfortable and spacious. It doesn’t matter if one person in your party has a physical handicap or several people do. We know that you want every person in your group to enjoy the experience of riding a comfortable mini-bus or motor coach rather than having to arrange their own separate transportation. Our company believes in inclusiveness as well, which is why we have offered these two handicap bus options for many years.
Reserve a Handicap Bus to Go Almost Anywhere in the Atlanta Area
Our handicap busses go anywhere that our other buses go in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
