The Widest Selection of Side-Entry Wheelchair Accessible Vans

The side-entry vehicle is a lowered-floor conversion, allowing for more head space for comfortably fitting a passenger in a wheelchair into the vehicle. Side-entry vehicles typically have removable front seats, allowing the wheelchair user to ride in the front passenger position or even drive the van. The vehicle can have either a fold-out ramp or an in-floor ramp that deploys from the passenger-side sliding door.
