Important Terms to Know About Transportation Service for Disabled

Transportation for a person with a disability is becoming more available to help everyone get around in their community. In almost every city and large town there are buses, shuttles and other means of transportation that can accommodate a disabled citizen. These modes of transportation are useful for the elder and handicap and are necessary in the case of an emergency. Here are some common terms used when referring to transportation service for people with disabilities.

  • Wheelchair – For those who use a wheelchair it is necessary to find transportation which can accommodate their needs. For example bus or transit with a ramp allowing the wheelchair to easily be rolled onto the vehicle.
  • Shuttle – Shuttle services typically run from one popular location such as a hospital or adult home to other public places. Shuttles are often very accommodating to the elder population and persons with disabilities.
  • Emergency – In the case of an emergency it is important that a disabled person is prepared to find safe transportation to get themselves help. Having a list of phone numbers for taxis, coaches and an ambulance on hand at all time is important so that the person injured can get medical attention as quickly as possible.
  • Door-to-door – Door to door services are often offered to elderly persons. This service will pick up different people in a van or shuttle and transport them around the city. An appointment is sometimes required.

    There are many transportation options available to disabled persons, handicap and the elderly. By knowing exactly who to contact for transportation a disabled person will have the ability to be a part of their community independently and get themselves medical attention if necessary.

    Those with disabilities know how difficult getting around can be, especially when living independently. Wheelchair ramps and handicap parking make things easier for citizens, but these support services have not always existed. While the first wheelchair patent was registered in 1869, it wasn't until 1973 that disability transportation options became available under federal law. Handicap parking stickers came into existence at that time along with anti-discrimination laws. In 1976, the first suit was filed against public buses who receive federal funding to make all of their transit buses wheelchair accessible. It wasn't until the 1990s that children were given the same consideration, making access to public school shuttle equipment open to everyone. Over time, many decision-makers have threatened to revise or revoke privileges given to those in the disability community, but the Americans with Disabilities Act has made things much easier in the care and transport of persons with medical issues. Still, unless you can drive your own vehicle, many adults with disabilities and elderly folks have difficulties getting help from home to their appointments. Many companies have sprung up around the country to offer an alternative form of transport from public transit for non-emergency medical transport with their custom built mobile cars and vans. Any adult or elderly person can rent these coaches and their drivers to assist them to and from the hospital if necessary. If emergency transit is necessary for sick or injured individuals, all local and state run emergency vehicles are outfit to aid those with any possible needs.
