|There are several types of wheelchair accessible vehicles. Many of these can accommodate wheelchair-bound people as passengers, but require someone else to drive. Some of these vehicle, however, can also accommodate a wheelchair-bound driver. To accomplish this, some modifications must usually be made to the vehicles.
Wheelchair accessible vans are the vehicles that most people think of when they hear about handicapped accessible vehicles. These are often modified so that a handicapped individual can enter the van easily. Ramps or lifts are usually attached to the vans to make this possible. These can be lowered and raised either by hand or by a small motor.
Large conversion vans and smaller mini-vans can be made into wheelchair accessible vehicles. With mini-vans, passengers in wheelchairs usually enter through the side. Larger vans allow passengers to enter from the rear, which can be a little easier for some.
