C-TRAN’s Tether Strap Program

Tether Strap Installation: Tether straps are designed to be attached to your mobility aid. These heavy-duty straps can be used in conjunction with the wheelchair securement devices found in all C-TRAN buses. They are installed on mobility aids with irregular sized securement points or in locations that are difficult to access.

Tether straps are issued to riders at no charge and installed on an as-needed basis.

Wheelchairs and Scooters: C-TRAN is aware that not all mobility aids are alike. This program is offered to better accommodate each wheelchair or scooter, but not all mobility aids need to use them.

Objectives: This program is designed to identify key securement points on all types of mobility aids. The results are:

  • Increased accessibility of C-TRAN buses to individuals using all types of mobility aids;
  • Support for coach operators in performing safe and proper wheelchair securement.
