ease of access
The easy to use, strong ramp offers easy access for wheelchair passengers. Entry is further aided by the shallow ramp angle, that of a typical kerb.
Prominent lips to each edge help to ensure the wheelchair’s trajectory and prevent the wheels from leaving the ramp.
Passenger features such as USB chargers, climate control and driver intercom are braille-embossed for those with impaired vision.
The integrated wheelchair ramp houses a clever folding mechanism which quickly transforms it into an access step, reducing the step height by half enabling passengers to exit the vehicle with greater ease.
Sometimes restricted mobility impacts the ability to twist so to provide easier entry and exit. An easily accessible swivel seat pivots outside the vehicle for better access.
High visibility contrasting
Bright, non-slip handles aid the entry and exit of all passengers, especially those with limited vision, while high visibility seat edges help passengers safely find their seat.
Once inside, the digital intercom features an induction loop, allowing hearing aid wearers to hear the driver clearly, the channel is also marked on both sides of the vehicle with visible labelling.
Furthermore, passengers are able to communicate visually with drivers thanks to the clear partition screen.
The interior floor is completely flat, without intrusion, and covered in a slip-resistant material. Thanks to generous internal dimensions there is sufficient room to easily rotate the wheelchair user into a comfortable forward-facing position.
Wheelchair users may remain in their wheelchair when travelling in TX thanks to our comprehensive restraint system in-line with the ISO 10542 standard.
Bright LED lighting has been used throughout, from floor lighting, puddle lamps and even reading lamps which can be adjusted for brightness by simply pressing and holding the on/off button.
Large door aperture
The rear-hinged passenger door opens a full 90 degrees to create a large, un-obtruded aperture with a minimum width at its narrowest point of 80cm.
