Curbside service for everyone, anytime, anywhere

The Shift N Step is a time-tested, ADA-compliant conversion that accommodates both wheelchair and ambulatory passengers through a single, curb-side entry point. It is the first of its kind to provide complete accessibility for all passengers and maximum convenience for an enterprise—the ideal vehicle for public transit agencies and non-emergency transportation firms.

Sliding Side-entry Lift

34-inch-wide automatic lift with an 800-pound capacity remotely slides rearward to create access for ambulatory passengers. The new dual-entry system is ideal for various needs and makes loading and unloading a breeze.
