Disability Accessibility

We here at SmartLink Transit take pride in providing transportation to all residents of Scott and Carver counties, even if you have a disability. If you use a walker, a wheelchair or a power scooter of any type you can still get around. All of our buses have the ability to load and unload any type of transportation device. Our staff is properly trained in the correct procedure of loading and unloading of wheelchairs and scooters as well as the proper tie down procedures so you can rest assured that you will be properly secured.
If you use a walker and are unable to use the stairs of the bus, you too, can also use the lift to gain access to the bus. Simply tell the driver of the bus that you would like to use the lift and we would be more than happy to assist you.

We are also here to assist you as we can help you get from your door to our bus door and vice-versa.

Proper Loading & Unloading
Proper loading/unloading of a wheelchair and scooter require the driver to load/unload the device with the back towards the bus. You will face out when loading and unloading.
