WRTA Policy on Wheelchair Securement in Vehicles

  1. Wheelchairs must be secured in a forward-facing position only.
  2. All four belts must be used to secure wheelchairs to the floor tracks.
  3. All passengers must wear their seatbelts, unless they have a documented medical condition that prohibits their use.
  4. Riders in wheelchairs who have difficulty holding their upper body in an upright position must use the torso belt.

The WRTA feels that passengers who use three (3)- or four (4)- wheeled scooter-type mobility devices are most safely served by transferring to a vehicle seat, while the device is secured to the vehicle floor. Passengers riding such devices will be asked to transfer to a seat.
