Wheelchairs and Mobility Devices

Personal mobility devices have become increasingly diverse in size, design and functionality. It is important that these devices meet certain design standards for you to travel safely on Sun Van.

The U.S. Department of Transportation Regulations 49 CFR Parts 37 and 38 governs “Transportation Services for Individuals with Disabilities” and “ADA Specifications for Transportation Vehicles”. Passengers exceeding the limits listed below may be denied boarding.

What is a “wheelchair”?
As defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Regulation, it is:
“Wheelchair means a mobility aid belonging to any class of three or more wheeled devices, usable indoors, designed or modified for and used by individuals with mobility impairments, whether operated manually or powered.”

All Sun Van vehicles are built and maintained in adherence with all USDOT regulations, and can transport all wheelchairs regardless of size or weight as long as the lift and vehicle can physically accommodate them.

Please call Sun Van’s Customer Service Center for details at (520) 798-1000 (TDD: 884-5100).
