Accessible Transportation for Wheelchair Users in Orland Park

As people still need to meet their regular health needs, transportation becomes a major concern when getting to their medical appointments. Suburban areas such as Orland Park know this importance too well, prompting the need to get reliable, safe and accessible transportation to get around.

Is Public Transportation Viable?

Public transportation is often not practical, with 30 to 40% of users experiencing reduced mobility.  Loading and unloading passengers with wheelchairs can be difficult, especially when spaces are tight, considering other passengers. Plus, city buses can only cater to a limited number of wheelchairs, causing delays that take up time if buses are full. Also, there’s a height difference between floors, and the cramped conditions increase the risk of COVID-19 exposure. Public transportation is out of the question for many patients in wheelchairs when they need to get to appointments on time.

There are a number of problems that come from the lack of transportation such as:

Missed Appointments

About 27% of patients miss their appointments due to a number of factors, where transportation could count.

Lack of Quality Transportation Options

6 million people with disabilities around the country have difficulties getting the transportation they need. 560,000 of them often don’t leave home due to transportation difficulties.

Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT)

Accessible NEMT vehicles comply with the Americans With Disability Act (ADA) to provide safe and comfortable transportation to patients who need to get to medical appointments. 

NEMT providers, like BriteLift may provide options that cater to people with Wheelchairs, Scooters, or other mobility devices.
