Need a WAV Refresher? Join Accessible Dispatch Every Monday!

During every trip, we want Accessible Dispatch passengers to be comfortable, safe, and confident that their driver knows how to help them safely board the vehicle and secure their mobility device. Outside of the passenger assistance and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) operating courses that every Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC)-licensed driver is required to complete, Accessible Dispatch is proud to offer additional training!

TLC-licensed drivers: do you need tips on how to operate your WAV’s ramp and securement system? We host Refresher Training sessions every Monday. Join us to:

  • Stay up-to-date on how to operate your vehicle’s ramp
  • Help passengers with disabilities board and de-board the vehicle
  • Learn how to secure passengers using your WAV’s securement straps.
  • Find out how learning how to secure passengers faster and more appropriately can help you take more trips and earn more money
