GO bus Accessible

The most important part of the GO announcement to my mind is that the buses are accessible. Graycoach is not and VIA trains will only take up to 600 pounds. Many electric wheelchairs are over 300 pounds and that’s not with the person.  A lift came out of the bottom middle of the bus and then a door opened in the side of the bus. Seats are moved and the person is lifted into the bus.

The bus also had a bike rack on the front with something we need, a counter to see how it is used. An amazing vehicle.

Link to a picture. Would have liked one of the lift.
