    Hi everyone,

    I have been tossing up renting an ECV off site. I can see the many advantages to it. But I have one more question before I make my final descision.

    Are all the buses equiped with a the wheel chair lift. If not usually how long did you have to wait for another bus?

    Thanks all
    Jamie

    95% of the buses are lift equipped. The longest you might wait would be 20 minutes but the drivers often radio that there is a wheelchair waiting if they aren't lift equipped so the bus gets there faster.

    Our experience has been the same as lisapooh. We've been coming to WDW for 12 years with our daughter who uses a wheelchair. We occasionally have had to wait extra for a wheelchair bus, especially at closing time at DD. But the drivers and dispatchers have done a good job of sending a lift bus for us when that happens.

    Thanks for your quick response. I just placed my order with Walker Mobility. I does seem that it will be a great advantage to renting one off site.

    Thanks again
