Offering a courtesy shuttle bus has become the new norm to facilitate access for guests and patrons to venues. Today there is a focus on social inclusion. A courtesy bus that caters for people with limited mobility or visually impaired sends a positive message.
Over 10 years of facilitating access to venues and events, venues have discovered a real benefit. Introduce a courtesy shuttle bus from a nearby transport hub, and an increased regular patronage to the venue follows. Popular venues include theatres, concert halls , race days and reception venues.
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.
What are benefits of offering a shuttle bus?
Special events , such as New Years Eve, race days or weddings, can be enjoyed by all.These include the less mobile or visually impaired.
Last new year’s eve a group of wheelchair users had the thrill of a lifetime. A number 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.
