Ford automakers’ know that sometimes, finding the right vehicle to keep you independent despite your limited mobility can be difficult.  That’s why they created the 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon, along with their Ford Mobility Motoring Reimbursement Program.  The 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon can easily be upfitted with a lowering seat for access, along with a lift that will accommodate a motorized scooter or chair, at an affordable price.  The vehicle also allows consumers to pick and choose, with an option for adding the lift only to keep the costs lower.

The Ford Transit Connect is already a winner with drivers looking to make mobility a little easier – in 2012 and 2013, it was the number one vehicle for customers participating in the Ford Mobility Motoring Reimbursement Program.  This program offers up to a $1,000 reimbursement for drivers who need to modify their vehicle for accessibility.

Andrew Bayer is the automotive products manager of Bruno Independent Living Aids, the company that manufactures equipment like chairs and lifts that can be installed in the Ford Transit Connect Wagon.  He explained that “Transit Connect Wagon offers the right mixture of affordability, interior spaciousness and capability that is appealing to all people.”  He added that “Bruno is proud to work with Ford to ensure people with limited mobility are able to equip Transit Connect Wagon with the upfit options they need to help lead an independent lifestyle.”
