Fragile members of our communities can’t always rely on their family and friends for transportation to appointment. Normal public transit can be insufficiently equipped and dangerous for people who have specialized needs.
For people with disabilities who use wheelchairs or are otherwise incapacitated, transportation to and from appointments or other occasional travel needs can be problematic without a wheelchair van to transport them in Orlando.
When they need to get to and from a doctor’s appointment or the hospital for routine a non-emergency medical appointment in Orlando Alkar Transport will be there to assist with a wheelchair/gurney van.
These specialized needs aren’t limited to those with permanent disabilities. People who have undergone surgery, have acute injuries, and/or take medication that causes impairment are just as vulnerable, which puts driving themselves out of the question.
You can imagine how a person in a cast on his/her legs and arms might feel having to take a small Uber ride or boarding a crowded bus. For all these at-risk populations, non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) provides crucial support to those who cannot safely travel through standard transit.

We Provide Comfort to Passengers
You know what it’s like to ride in an uncomfortable taxi. It can make the ride feel ten times longer than it is. No one wants to feel uneasy and uncomfortable while on their way to their destination.
Then, think about being in a wheelchair. It can be even more uncomfortable trying to use a service that isn’t wheelchair accessible. Where will the chair go? Will someone provide help in breaking down and setting up the wheelchair? Does the driver know how to make seating comfortable for someone with a physical disability?
You will have use of a vehicle that allows the wheelchair user to ride securely from their wheelchair. This takes out the discomfort and the potential for injury from transferring. It also provides a sense of independence to the ride hailer.
The Convenience of Wheelchair Transportation
A wheelchair accessible vehicle offers convenience to passengers that caters to their needs. There are three things to keep in mind when choosing wheelchair transportation:
• Safety and Reliability: Your wheelchair transportation should offer quality, reliable vehicles as clients’ safety will be in your hands.
• Customisation: We have vehicles with different ramp styles and accessible entries.
• Accessibility: We have vans lifts or ramps to improve accessibility
