I will remove the seat, the frame work behind the seat and the seat mounted to the wheel well and install a transfer seat.



Like this one.

One of those transfer seats would be nice for ANYONE with a FE bus!

If some one needs o get out of the bus quickly and there using a wheel chair ramp. I think its fair to say your not in a hurry or your not going to do it very fast. I wouldn't let this be a build issue for design.

A wheel chair sure adds to the limit space issue. How does it effect your bathroom design? I can see 30 or 36 inch isle to roll down. My grand father was in a chair and he had his bathroom remodeled and it was quite a bit bigger when they were done for him.

I want the bathroom to be big enough that I am not banging into crap all the time. I want to do a center isle to maximize floor space. Knee space is important too. if i can fit my knees under then I can turn around in a 36 inch isle. I will try to draw an example soon. and post it.

I will remove the old suspension seat, and the partition behind the driver's seat, and remove the seat mounted to the wheel well.

Install the transfer seat base i found. The seat base rotates 180 degrees. It can point straight forward for driving, rotate to the right and face straight back. I hope to use the old seat for now. Should bolt right up.

I considered driving from my chair but long distance it's just not that comfortable. And a nice captains chair will be a lot better.
