Accessibility for Passengers with Mobility Disabilities: Maneuvering and Securement

Securing a Manual Wheelchair, Luggage or Pull-cart

Some users of manual chairs and scooters prefer and are able to transfer themselves to seats in a vehicle. Some riders will bring luggage and pull-carts. They are then faced with a common challenge: securing the manual wheelchair, luggage or pull-cart. Robocars should include provisions for that storage that can be easily deployed in the passenger compartment. While an able-bodied rider can load luggage in the trunk (if one exists), that isn't the case for many individuals with manual wheelchairs and those (often older adults) 2-wheeler pull-carts.
