Re: Question about wheelchair ramp use.

I just bought my bus with a chair lift. The guy I got it from, the bus, used the lift to load his Harley in for use when they got where they were going. The center piece that was used to hold the rear wheel slid out and would be stowed inside.

Good luck with yours,

That's DarrenDriven's Bondo Condo. Last I heard he'd sold it and (he) was over in China. Don't know what happened to the bus.

Re: Question about wheelchair ramp use.

That's a great idea, but like someone mentioned earlier, the scooter might be a bit long for the ramp. But, adding the extention to it would likely solve that problem. All the lifts on the paratransit buses I've seen are usually rated 600 - 700 pounds. The biggest problem with them is keeping them working. There's lots of sensors on them and later model ones are controlled by a circuit board.
