Disabled university students can find the added pressure of getting about a strain on both their social life and academic performance. To help alleviate this concern for their students, Nottingham University provides free accessible transport throughout the university’s five campuses. Showing continued commitment to improving disabled access, Nottingham University has invested in a new disabled minibus from Allied Mobility.
Opting for the Peugeot Monarch minibus, David Skinner, the fleet manager for Nottingham University, said: “We needed a wheelchair accessible minibus with high quality safety features and rear passenger lift and the Peugeot Monarch offers both. We can accommodate multiple wheelchair passengers together with able-bodied students so it’s the perfect choice.”
The Peugeot Monarch has been adapted by Allied Mobility to meet the particular specification required by Nottingham University, with safety features such as wheelchair passenger lap and diagonal seat belts and high quality wheelchair restraints. Providing space for up to two wheelchair passengers, an electric side step and rear passenger lift, the Monarch meets all their accessibility needs.
As Allied Mobility’s most popular minibus, the Peugeot Monarch minibus offers a high quality specification at market-leading affordability. With a selection of seating layouts including the option of multiple wheelchair passengers and detachable seats, the Monarch offers great versatility, accommodating a range of travel requirements.
With an ever increasing interest from disabled students, Nottingham University is becoming well recognised for its superb accessibility. David explains: “This year we have more disabled students than ever before and the new minibus will be a great help providing responsive transport for our students between our campuses.
“We’re dedicated to improving disabled access throughout the university and we continue to receive great feedback from our students and interest from prospective disabled students.”
Allied Mobility expert advisors are always at hand to provide information on the variousminibus options available. David explains: “Allied were more that happy to discuss the wheelchair minibus specification I was looking for. The overall service and attention to detail was ideal for our needs.”
