They’re the perfect choice for paratransit transport, non-emergency medical transport, and caregiving facilities because of their versatility, durability, and low cost.
We understand that manual and automatic wheelchairs come in various shapes and dimensions, so we cater to all wheelchair builds to grant your company a competitive advantage. Whether you work in the caregiving industry or provide your employees with company-owned vehicles, we have a make and model for your applications.
Your daily operations are unique. Freedom Motors USA offers a vast collection of vehicles to help you fulfill your needs, including wheelchair-accessible taxis, vans with stretcher mounts, and paratransit vans. We’ll help you find new and used commercial wheelchair vehicles to suit your budget.
Freedom Motors USA converts many of our wheelchair-accessible taxis with the widest ramp available. The Superwide ramp helps our builds exceed the expectations and standards outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). What’s more, we use precision engineering to enhance your passengers’ safety.
Freedom Motors USA is a wheelchair taxi manufacturer that incorporates durable aircraft-grade aluminized steel ramps for your busiest days on the road. Equip your team with wheelchair-accessible taxis from automakers you associate with reliability. Some of our best-selling options include Toyota Sienna and Dodge Grand Caravan models. The benefits of our wheelchair-accessible taxis for sale include:
- Versatility: Choose from vehicles with 30-inch, 34-inch, 40-inch or 48-inch Superwide rear-entry ramps.
- Safety: Integrate user-friendly passenger restraint systems.
- Longevity: Resist rust with aluminized steel ramp materials.
- Simplicity: Clean commercial-grade vehicle flooring easily.
- Flexibility: We have folding rear seats as necessary in wheelchair taxis.
Freedom Motors is proud to offer the widest ramps in the industry, including our Superwide 40” Dodge Caravan and the Superwide 48” Toyota Sienna. Wide ramps are a great fit for NEMT vehicles as they allow for various wheelchair sizes and easily accommodate stretchers and gurneys. Both the Grand Caravan and Sienna come in 30” and 34” wide ramps, as well.
Our team has crash-tested our non-emergency medical transport (NEMT) vehicles and ensure they comply with ADA regulations. Vehicles that include stretcher mount customizations have a unique design and equipment that allows patients to stay horizontal and secure. Adapt to non-emergency situations quickly while keeping patient comfort levels in mind.
The professionals at Freedom Motors USA recognize that every day on the job is distinct from the last. For the safety of you and your employees, our NEMT and paratransit vans minimize the need for manual lifting. Check out the details below for a closer look at vehicle specifications:
- You can transport patients weighing up to 515-pounds via stretcher.
- Select NEMT vans contain five emergency exit points.
- Freedom Motors USA conversions give you as much as 100 inches of floor length.
- You can configure your order to seat two to five ambulatory passengers with a folding third row bench.
Versatile Stretcher Securement System
Our stretcher vans come equipped with an antler and rail securement system that makes loading and unloading easy. Simply secure the front wheels of the stretcher in the antler and lock the stretcher in place with the rail.
If you need to transport one or two wheelchair passengers instead of a stretcher, simply remove the antler and rail from the floor mounts and use the provided restraints to secure the wheelchairs.
ADA Requirements for All Commercial Wheelchair Vans
Taxi and paratransit van conversions must abide by a series of guidelines outlined by the ADA to qualify as commercial wheelchair vehicles. Requirements can differ between states, but there are a few standard rules wheelchair vehicle manufacturers have to follow nationwide.
Freedom Motors USA keeps your business ADA-compliant by designing commercial wheelchair vans according to these ADA parameters:
- Vehicle conversions must have at least a 56-inch door opening height.
- All wheelchair ramps must be at least 30 inches wide.
- Gear shifters must have a lock to prevent parking accidents.
- Commercial wheelchair vans have to feature at least four tie-downs, plus lap and shoulder belts.
- The vehicle’s cabin must have lighting.
Common ADA Requirements That Vary Across States
Freedom Motors USA allows you to test-drive and purchase our commercial wheelchair vans for sale from anywhere in the country. We’re aware of the latest legislation relating to ADA compliance in your area, so we can steer you in the right direction toward a vehicle that ensures you’re up to local codes. Some ADA rules that vary between states involve:
- Tire treading depths and patterns
- Exterior light functionality

Quality, Dependability and Affordability
Freedom Motors USA experts introduce you to commercial wheelchair vehicles engineered to last for years to come. Our team prioritizes your employees’ and passengers’ safety by only converting highly rated vehicles. Customize new releases from Toyota, Dodge and other world-class manufacturers. You may also opt for a pre-owned model showcasing all-new wheelchair ramp technology for exceptional cost savings.
Durability is important for NEMT vans that must withstand stretchers, wheelchairs and other heavy equipment entering and exiting the vehicle frequently. Freedom Motors takes pride in the longevity of our vehicles when compared to other stretcher or wheelchair vans for sale.
Our vans use commercial-grade vinyl flooring that can withstand even the roughest weather conditions. In addition, our ramps are powder-coated to protect against rust and provide for easy clean-up in any environment.
Freedom Motors stretcher vans meet and exceed federally required ADA compliance standards set for NEMT and paratransit vehicles. In the case of a collision, the reinforced tubular floor’s reverse roll cage desin provides extra security for the vehicle and passengers.
Choose from either the hydraulic ramp with automatic operation; or the spring-assisted manual ramp. The manual ramp is easy to operate and works reliably in any weather conditions. The spring-assisted system can easily be operated with one hand. Due to its simplicity, the ramp requires much less upkeep and maintenance than a lift system or other accessibility options.
