Stay and fly in Philadelphia w/scooter

Does anyone have any experience with this? We finally convinced my parents to fly. Prior years, they drove down and met us there. We have always done the stay, park and fly. but we never needed an accessible shuttle. Anyone know of any hotels that have one? So far I found ALoft, but I have a few concerns about that hotel. Would be very appreciative for any info you can offer.

Here a web site for park sleep and fly but can't find any of about accessibility but they are required by federal law to have accessible shuttles you just might need they them know your flight info so they put that one on the run. Here in NYC by grand central they have bus to all three airports and seems that almost every other shuttle bus is accessible or their at least one parked their every time I walk by and they don't require advance reservations so they have to be prepared plus they are good priced for where they set up shop.

If the hotel has a shuttle to airport most likely they will have an accessible one or if they use a service they will have to have one not everyone required to be accessible but not sure how many to a regular shuttle bus/van.

I never used that site so use the ones you like a loft are supposed to be nice never stayed at one yet but they are owned by a good company.

I have been reading info on Ada and dot web site basically means that as long as you give them at least 48 hours advance notice needing an accessible van/bus they must provide one.

I just wish that site would offer better info for guest in wheelchairs supper shuttle so far the Only site I see an option to click for guest in wheelchairs but I guess for Philly they use town CSS and SUV. They want 99 for town car and 170 for SUV tried without clicking for wheelchair and the same thing they don't serve Philly with their vans service they only provide third party sedan service.

I'd suggest calling around. I thought I'd known a powerchair user who used Super Shuttle there. There may now be wheelchair accessible taxis (I think either the city or the main taxi company lost a lawsuit a few years ago because there weren't any until at least 2009). Depending on where you are staying, they could also possibly use public transportation. It takes more energy, but SEPTA does have fairly decent access and during college I used it as late as midnight or 1AM and felt safe (even when alone; I'm a woman).
