This mobility device exceeds 10km/hour in speed and as such, operation may. not be allowed on footpaths. Check with the supplier and/or local state roads Authority to confirm procedures and rules for these mobility devices.


Wheelchair spaces
All new Canberra buses feature special 'kneeling suspension' and a ramp to provide easy access for less mobile passengers.

There are spaces for two wheelchairs on the new buses. These will accommodate most manual and electric wheelchairs with maximum length 1250mm, maximum width 750mm, maximum turning circle1500mm and maximum weight 200kg.


For safety reasons, passengers in wheelchairs are advised to face the back of the bus, bracing their wheelchair against the side of the space, applying the brakes and securing the seat belt of the wheelchair.

Wheelchair accessible buses display a blue and white wheelchair sign on the front of the bus, and on the easy access door.

Transport Requirements
Occupied Wheelchair in a Car 


A person sitting in a wheelchair within a car or van requires certification and RMS (Roads and Maritime Services) approval for the wheelchair and occupants restraint system where the wheelchair or occupant are restrained to the vehicle structure. RMS approval is not required for a postural support, such as a harness, that is only attached to the wheelchair and not to the vehicle.


Wheelchair Restraints
When transporting a person in a wheelchair in a car or van, both the occupant and the wheelchair require a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) approved restraint system. The wheelchair and the occupant need to be separately secured to the vehicle itself.
RMS approval is not required for a postural support, such as a harness that supports the user in the wheelchair but is not part of the vehicle restraint system. 


The use of a headrest is not legally required but strongly recommended. Easily detachable, folding headrests which fit a wheelchair with standard push handles are available. Contact the supplier or refer to section Wheelchair, Scooter, Cushions, ramps / Postural Supports - Seating System: Restraint+Head+Back+Seats
