Side and rear entry wheelchair accessible minivans are available with conversions on most major makes and models, including: Chrysler, Dodge, Honda, Ford, and Toyota.

There are a lot of different options when it comes to choosing a wheelchair accessible vehicle. Choosing between a side or rear entry vehicle is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make.

A side entry vehicle allows wheelchair users to enter in the mid-ship area and roll to the front or middle of the vehicle. In a rear entry vehicle, wheelchair users roll in from the back and stay in the back or middle of the vehicle.
