Coaches with full wheelchair access

We operate a number of wheelchair accessible coaches, which have proved very useful for some clients.

Redwing North Kent executive coach with wheelchair lift.
The wheelchair lift allows easy access for a wheelchair user and attendant.

Powered chairlift

A hydraulic chairlift platform lifts the passenger, in their wheelchair and with an attendant, up to a large door in the side of the coach at floor level for easy access.

There is space for one passenger seated in their wheelchair for the duration of the journey. Please check with us before booking to ensure that your wheelchair is compatible with the restraining mechanisms fitted to our coaches.

In addition, passengers with folding wheelchairs who are able to transfer to conventional coach seats once they have entered the coach via the chairlift can also be accommodated. Once in their seats, their wheelchairs will be folded and stored in the coach's main luggage compartment. Several passengers with wheelchairs can be accommodated in this way.

Our wheelchair accessible coaches have 49 seats plus 1 wheelchair position. They do not have a toilet.

How it works

The slideshow below shows how the chairlift system works.

Call us for full details

As space for passengers with wheelchairs is limited it is essential that we are informed about a wheelchair passenger's details and wheelchair specifications at the time of booking. We generally need 48 hours notice to prepare the coach, as a suitable coach must be allocated and one row of seats has to be removed to make space for a wheelchair.

In addition, there may be some types of wheelchairs we are unable to transport, so please contact us on 01474 322002 to discuss this before booking.
