Transportation should be readily available to everyone, and T-Plus is committed to making sure it is. Our accessible ride services provide for the needs and comfort of disabled riders to make sure they can travel to their destination with the same ease as anyone else.
The City of Minneapolis initiated a service a few years ago to provide wheelchair accessible taxi service to the public. Transportation Plus immediately became involved, accounting for two of the five participating companies.
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles
Transportation Plus has the largest fleet of taxis in the Twin Cities, including a large branch of wheelchair accessible taxis. Each of our wheelchair accessible vans can hold up to five passengers and is ADA compliant and STS (Special Transportation Services) certified. That means all of our accessible taxis
- comply with the regulations for vehicle safety
- contain any necessary specialized safety equipment
- adhere to general vehicle maintenance and inspection standards, and
- meet or exceed minimum insurance requirements.
The standards for the operation of vehicles used in STS service are enforced by MnDOT. This includes conducting annual and random vehicle inspections and conducting records audits. All of this ensures STS providers are delivering a safe transportation experience for users of the service.
Safe and reliable transportation for people with disabilities is about more than access to ADA compliant taxis. The people operating those taxis must also be trained to operate any necessary equipment and to assist passengers.
T-Plus drivers are also STS certified in addition to receiving training in defensive driving, customer service, and GPS navigation. STS driver certification includes specialized driver training for passengers needing additional assistance. MnDOT also verifies qualifications of drivers and attendants (including training requirements).
