Wheelchair access on bus transfers
Wheelchairs cannot be carried on our bus transfer service. However, at the time of booking, please advise us if you require this service and we will make alternative arrangements.
Skyrail can accommodate most standard wheelchairs. However, due to size restrictions and loading requirements, personal wheelchairs are required to have the following:
- Width – cannot exceed 630mm.
- Length – cannot exceed 950mm.
- Wheelchairs must be capable of being tilted backwards (raising the front wheels) to enable loading onto gondola.
- Combined weight of the wheelchair and occupant must be manageable to allow for operator-assisted loading.
- Must have handles to ensure easy lifting into the gondolas.
Skyrail can provide complimentary onsite use of a wheelchair, subject to availability.
