CCW becomes first to offer wheelchair charging station retrofits

Posted on May 9, 2019

Complete Coach Works (CCW) announced it will offer retrofits to allow ADA passengers to charge their wheelchairs at each tie down location in the bus.

This upgrade will be available to all types of buses. It includes an installation of plug outlets at each wheelchair tie-down station, allowing riders to plug in their cords and charge while riding the bus. The key advantage to the charging station is to provide ADA riders with better accessibility and offering them a bit more power to reach their destination.

Wheelchair charging stations will give riders the assurance needed to navigate the city freely. In addition, the charging stations will enhance wheelchair reliability and drive range allowing users to go a further distance. This retrofit will pave the road for other agencies to notice the benefits of adding wheelchair charging stations to their buses.
