Most transportation networks do not accommodate the needs of people with physical, cognitive, and sensory disabilities. In New York City, only one third of the subways are wheelchair accessible, severely limiting people’s mobility. The VeloPlus wheelchair bike was designed for people to be transported in their own wheelchair and the platform tilts to become an on/off ramp.
