Low-Floor Bus

If your organization is looking for a low-floor bus that’s wheelchair accessible with a ramp, then you’ve come to the right place.

ADA entry ramps provide a dignified, equal approach to entering a low-floor bus. Wheelchair passengers and those with disabilities are able to enter the bus utilizing a ramp at the same entry door as ambulatory passengers. A low-floor transit bus truly provides equal access for all. The exteriors of our low-floor handicap buses for sale are built with materials that prevent rust and corrosion.

A good first impression with your bus can be the difference between a new customer and a missed opportunity, that’s why Schetky’s buses are designed with aesthetics and functionality in mind. Our customers know that a bus purchased from us doubles as a marketing piece that they can proudly operate within their communities. If your wheelchair-accessible bus looks new, it properly reflects the large investment you’ve made to transport your customers comfortably and safely. Our low-floor mobility buses for sale meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and are built with wheelchair ramps and accessibility modifications that meet and exceed ADA requirements.

Low-Floor Ramps

Low-floor transit buses with ramps provide dignity for all passengers, and our manufacturers of low-floor buses provide the safest, most comfortable and most reliable models. With flat, level interior floors and the highest-grade slip-resistant flooring, our low-floors have been the preference of transit and senior living customers alike. To allow the easiest passenger navigation, our models come with more interior space, allowing wheelchairs to easily perform 360 degree turns and ambulatory passengers enough room to easily navigate the aisle. Plus, we offer a four corner kneeling suspension that can lower the bus further, which minimizes the slope of the entrance ramp. Our buses are built to withstand the most rigorous use, and far outlast similar products. When you buy one of our low-floor handicap buses, you are buying the best product in the market. You’ll also receive our best-in-class service and support for the lifetime of that product.

Standard Floor Bus with Wheelchair Lift

The standard floor bus is your typical bus with steps at the entry door for ambulatory passengers to enter the bus. Wheelchairs enter the bus through a separate entry that is wider and allows for a hydraulic wheelchair lift to raise the passenger and their wheelchair high enough that the lift platform is level with the interior floor, and the wheelchair can proceed into the vehicle’s interior.

Buses with wheelchair lifts are more common than low-floor buses for a couple reasons. First, a wheelchair lift is powered, so anyone can raise/lower the lift with a handheld controller. So, individuals of all strengths can provide assistance to the wheelchair passenger equally, as opposed to a ramp that may require an attendant to push the wheelchair up the ramp. Secondly, wheelchair lift buses are sold at a lower price point. For companies that haven’t budgeted for a higher dollar vehicle, a wheelchair lift bus is generally their best mode of wheelchair transportation

Whichever mode of transport you choose for wheelchair accessible buses, all units sold by Schetky meet ADA standards for vehicles, and all FTA requirements for vehicle safety. You can rest assured that your wheelchair accessible bus is designed to provide the safety and security needed to transport passengers with wheelchairs.
