Courtesy shuttle buses have become the new norm to cater for guest and patron visitation. Particularly in a time of social inclusion, courtesy buses that cater for the less mobile or visually impaired send a positive message.
From our experience over 10 years of facilitating access to venues and events, an interesting benefit has emerged. Studies show that increased regular patronage follows when a courtesy shuttle bus from a nearby public transport hub is introduced.
On a regular basis, our fleet of wheelchair accessible buses proudly supports iconic Sydney performance spaces with wheelchair accessible shuttle buses for their patrons. The impact is significant. More than 25000 patrons annually utilise the shuttle bus service to access shows in Sydney cbd.
Here is a link to the service as offered by one of our venue clients.
Special events , such as New Years Eve or race days, can be enjoyed by all , including the less mobile or visually impaired. Last new year’s eve a group of wheelchair had the thrill of a lifetime when 3 of our wheelchair accessible buses took them right into the city centre to watch the fireworks from a bird’s eye view. It was spectacular and a memory they will treasure forever.
In support of barrier free access, our shuttle buses offer a wheelchair hoist , additional steps and grab rails at door entry and floor markings for the visually impaired. The response from patrons is most gratifying . They regularly express their appreciation of access support. Many theatre subscribers say they would not subscribe or would be able to attend without it.
Bus sizes with wheelchair access range from 7 seaters to 20 seaters. Larger buses to 53 seats are also available.
We welcome the opportunity to support universal access to your venue or event in a tangible and client friendly way.
If you consider that you , your patrons or community can benefit from a service that facilitates access we will be pleased to create a service that is unique to your needs.
