a wheelchair ramp access built into stairsA wheelchair user using a non standard size wheelchair trying to book a taxi will have to request a taxi that they can alight. Using the bus has given a wheelchair user a massive amount of freedom, and Lothian Buses have to be congratulated for the service they deliver, if the one wheelchair space has already been taken then another wheelchair user will have to wait for the next bus with a wheelchair space that is vacant
