Are all makes and models of mobility devices appropriate for bus transportation?

The Transportation Department recommends that residents choose wheelchairs and power carts that comply with the ANSI/RESNA WC/19 transit option standard. This standard was developed by safety and rehabilitation experts and assures the purchaser that the device is safe and appropriate for bus travel. All devices that meet this standard are equipped with four easily identifiable and crash-tested securement points to which tie-down straps can be attached.
