How many passengers can ride in a van?

can vary depending on if the van is equipped with fold-down seating, original OEM seats, or new Freedman seats.
Why is ADA Compliant important?
Purchasing an ADA-compliant vehicle for your business means you are eligible to enter into a contract or agreement with public entities to provide transportation services as well as providing a safe method of transportation. An ADA vehicle is also equipped to be able to handle a variety of wheelchair sizes.
How do I know if the vehicle is ADA compliant?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifies certain vehicle specifications for compliance when transporting stretcher or wheelchair users. These vehicle specifications include door opening height, ramp and door opening width, ramp slope, weight-bearing load minimums, and more. While a private WAV owner would typically not need an ADA-compliant van, transportation companies do need to meet the ADA requirements.
