“Kneeling” Buses, Public Address Systems and Wheelchair Lifts Each RTC RIDE bus has a front-end “kneeling” feature that lowers the first step to curb level for easier access for people who have difficulty climbing stairs. Just ask the driver to have the bus “kneel” for you. All RTC RIDE buses have a public address system for stop, transfer and other announcements. In addition, our buses are equipped with either front door ramps for wheelchair access or wheelchair lifts located at the rear door of the bus, both of which are operated by the bus driver. Passengers in wheelchairs are loaded first and the driver will assist in securing your wheelchair. Mobility devices up to 30" x 48" and weighing up to 600 pounds when occupied can be accommodated.
All RTC RIDE buses have two secured wheelchair areas. Free mobility training is available from Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living. Call (775) 353-3599 (353-3588 TTY).
