Wheelchair Use on Coaches

Bus Queensland’s long distances services offer a safe journey for passengers who use wheelchairs.  Our drivers are trained on the use of the wheelchair lifts to ensure passenger safety.

These images give you a view of how the lifts operate to give DDA passengers the confidence to travel with Bus Queensland.  The images show Sharon Boyce from Discovering DisAbility and Diversity using our service.

Sharon runs disability awareness workshops across the region for universities and local councils and was recently been given a new role as Chair of the Disability Ministers Advisory Committee to give feedback on access issues and other related topics.

When travelling with Bus Queensland, Sharon has a DDA compliant maxi taxi meet her on arrival at the Brisbane Transit Centre in Roma Street, Brisbane enabling her to get to her meetings (and shopping area).

If you are travelling on a Bus Queensland service in a wheelchair and you have a carer, your carer will travel free of charge.  To book a ticket on Bus Queensland’s long distance services please either book online or alternatively we have a call centre ready to help you on 1300 287 537 to secure your seat on a journey. 

I was excited to use it for the first time. I was a little nervous to begin with but was very pleasantly surprised by the lift and tie down and seatbelts and the overall trip. The staff were all well trained and checked on me a number of times in the trip. The handovers between drivers and exchange of info about my travel was great. The ease of the journey and luggage carrying was also great. My two carers who also travelled with me were highly impressed by the drivers lovely attitudes and care of us all. They were certainly well trained in understanding about working with people who had a disability.
