Investigation of wheelchair instability during transport in large accessible transit vehicles

Zdravko Salipur, MEng, et al.

It is important to provide wheelchair users with appropriate protection during transportation. Recent research suggests that wheelchair passengers may not be properly protected while traveling on fixedroute intracity buses, in part because of the disuse and misuse of securement systems. This article examines possible instabilities wheelchair passengers encounter while on intracity buses.
