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 may use a torso belt when supplied by the rider.

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.
