These 7 new accessible vehicles let people with disabilities access micromobility

“We realized that disabilities come in all different shapes and sizes,” says Sam Sadle, Lime’s head of government relations for North America. “So we have a three-wheeled, sit-down device that is for somebody who has challenges balancing. We’ve got a two-wheeled sit-down device that is for somebody who can’t stand for a long amount of time, so it gives them a place to sit down the rest of their journey. We’ve got vehicles that are guided—essentially, you’ve got two people, so that somebody who is blind or hard or has low vision can partner with somebody who has full vision similar to how you would have a tandem bicycle.” Another scooter is seated and electric; another looks like a typical standing scooter but has an extra wheel for more stability. Another option is a stable tricycle with a shopping basket. The company also offers a handcycle that can be controlled without pedaling.
