Why Get a Wheelchair Van? Private Vs. Public Transportation

As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, public transportation is getting more and more attention.   Buses, trains, and subways provide a way to transport large groups of people in one singular trip.  It’s easier on our roads.  It consumes less resources.

And it can save the common man some money.

The problem is, all of this comes with a cost of convenience.  By choosing public transportation, a person sacrifices a certain amount of freedom.  That is why metro-areas are hard at work to expand their routes, optimize their scheduling, and provide enough good to outweigh the bad.  In large part, they have succeeded.

Except when it comes to the those with disabilities.

Almost but Not Quite

There’s no denying that disability awareness has come a long way in the past few decades.  From access ramps to lifts to signs and lighting systems, if a person with disabilities has a will, there is a way.  But it comes with certain risks.

Using public transportation takes some extra effort.  It’s not something that was made specifically for a person with special needs.  Just general needs.  A bus may give access to a person with a wheelchair, but it doesn’t wait or offer much assistance.  And most people using public transportation aren’t going to go out of their way to accommodate.

At Rollx Vans, we frequently hear from customers about their public transportation horror stories.  Times where they’ve had to wait hours or ended up stuck at a location.

A Wheelchair Van just for You

We would love to see the day where there is public transportation designed specifically for people with disabilities.  In the mean time, we will continue to produce the highest quality wheelchair vans available.  Whether it’s a new or used wheelchair van, Rollx Vans can give you all the transportation you need.

Having your own wheelchair van is a way to control your route, your schedule, and your destination.  We see it as a way to bridge the gap between those with disabilities and those without.  Why settle for anything less than the best?  Skip the risk and hassles of public transportation.  Get your van today.
