Will all sizes of wheelchairs fit on all FAX buses?
Will all sizes of wheelchairs fit on all FAX buses?  
All FAX buses are accessible to persons with disabilities. However, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has set guidelines for the size and weight of mobility devices which can be transported on public transit vehicles. FAX cannot transport devices which exceed these guidelines because the bus lifts are not designed to hold additional weight and also because of the physical problems which could be sustained by bus drivers accommodating devices in excess of the guidelines.

ADA guidelines define a "common wheelchair" as a device no larger than 30 inches wide and 48 inches long when measured two inches above the ground. Additionally, the combined weight of the wheelchair and occupant cannot exceed 600 pounds.
