Wheelchair Transportation for the Prom

Prom Transportation for Students with Disabilities

The prom is one of the most important nights for students everywhere. Being with great friends at graduation time means so much. And having Mom and Dad drive is just not the way to go.

So where do you find a great ride for students with disabilities? Go to Vega Transportation's website - or call 718-507-0500 and ask for Ed Kelley, Director of Sales and Marketing.

Vega has late model customized wheelchair vans that can accommodate up to 6 passengers. Some wheelchair vans can also accommodate 2 wheelchair passengers. The vehicles are customized with rear wheel chair lifts, high top roofs and doors, special suspension, front and rear air conditioning, wheel chair locks, and our newest ambulettes have a TV with DVD player. Vega covers the entire NY Metro area and has been a leader in special needs transportation since 1985.

Vega utilizes cutting edge technology to guarantee that you are on time for the prom. All vehicles are equipped with GPS and are tracked by satellite to pinpoint their exact location.

Vega is one of only 2 ambulette companies recommended by NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission and provides wheelchair accessible transportation to over 150 luxury limousine and black car companies.
