The lifts on all Skagit Transit vehicles can accommodate any standard ADA-defined wheelchair. They are designed to operate within weight limits set by the manufacturers, which include both the wheelchair and its occupant. Please allow the driver to securely fasten your wheelchair and yourself, if possible. If securing isn't feasible, you may still ride, but please be aware that it's at your own risk. For questions or concerns about accessible equipment, please contact Customer Service.

Accessibility Features on Buses
