About Us

WTS History

 

WTS was started in 1998 by Mark Lester (owner and Director) and has now grown to having 6 fully wheelchair accessible vehicles specially modified to accommodate wheelchair users in safety and comfort. We pride ourselves on offering a professional and safe service as well as being an extremely caring company that always treats our clients with respect and dignity.

 

 

Our wheelchair vehicles

Our different sized vehicles have capacity for between one and four wheelchairs plus travelling companions/carers. They are rear access-lift operated which makes entry and exit easy and safe for wheelchairs, with a step to the side door for other passengers. Wheelchair occupants, plus their companions, travel facing forward (in compliance with the safety recommendations from the Department of Transport.) Wheelchairs are tethered during journeys and safety straps are provided for the occupant. All other seats have safety belts.


Understanding wheelchair users

We appreciate the difficulties faced by many wheelchair users when using transport, and our aim is to make it a pleasant, safe and enjoyable experience. We ensure that our customers have peace of mind about their journey and are as comfortable as possible.

We also provide hire of manual wheelchairs upon request. This carries a small additional charge.
