The middle doors open as usual to allow guests with mobility devices to drive down the ramp directly into the accessible section.

The new system for securing mobility devices is called Q-Straint. Bus drivers will assist guests in parking their wheelchair or ECV properly with the new system.

To use the system, guests will return their wheelchair or ECV to the system using the yellow line as a guide. The button lowers the lever on the outside of the vehicle to lock it in place. There is a set of folding seats in the bay as well.
