Wheelchair Weight & Size Limit

Wheelchair Weight & Size Limit

In compliance with the ADA, the wheelchair lift on the train will accommodate a standard wheelchair (not to exceed 30” wide and 48” long), either manual or battery-powered. The combined weight of the wheelchair and the passenger cannot exceed 600 lbs. Unfortunately, we are not able to handle or transport any wheelchair that exceeds these limits.
