Where to cut? Cut through the door and make it taller?
A shuttle bus has a taller roof, might just get one of those instead.
As I have raised my shuttle bus roof, the wheelchair doors are going to have the windows removed and cut in the middle and a section added to make them taller, and in fact will be the new entry doors. Best place to cut is where it is straight edges if possible.
Perhaps you can just replace them altogether with some regular doors.
I found even the fiberglass handicap doors were very heavy, which I attribute to the glass, so if you remove the glass, that is where to cut.
The old entry doors were VERY heavy as they have even more glass, might want to ditch those too..
