People with disability
Metrobus offers a specialized transport service which is dedicated to people with disabilities on designated routes with 6 (six) buses which are equipped with hydraulic chair lift. This is a subsidized service and the passengers pay a monthly fee.
Special stickers are displayed at the front of the bus to notify commuters. The buses have ramps that align with the pavement to make wheelchair access easy. They also have dedicated wheelchair spaces complete with seatbelts that lock the wheelchairs to the floor.
